To qualify, students must:

      • Be enrolled in a post-secondary degree or diploma program during the 2018-2019 academic year;

Application Requirements

Applicants are required to complete and submit the following:

      • Scholarship application form
      • One 500-word essay outlining how the applicant demonstrates the values of The Living City—where human settlement can flourish forever as part of nature’s beauty and diversity
      • Two letters of reference, including one academic reference and one work-related reference

Submission Instructions

Application packages must be submitted online using the form below. Submissions are due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, September 30, 2018.

Review and Selection 

Submissions will be reviewed by Toronto and Region Conservation Foundation’s volunteer selection committee. Special consideration will be given to students who demonstrate leadership through volunteer and extracurricular activities. While academic excellence is important, scholarships will not necessarily be awarded to students with the highest marks. Scholarship winners  will be well-rounded leaders who are active in their communities and epitomize the ideals of conservation. The committee’s award decisions will be final.

Scholarship winners will be notified in writing of award by early October, and will be invited to attend the 25th Annual Living City Environmental Dinner on November 1, 2018 where scholarship awards will be presented.

Condition of Award

At the time of award, Toronto and Region Conservation Foundation will require verification of enrollment and permanent residence. Finalists’ references will be checked.
