ScholarTree Scholarship opportunities

At ScholarTree, we always look for various scholarships that apply to as many different types of students as possible. We have found that the more unique a scholarship criteria, the more likely a student is to apply and, more importantly, win that particular scholarship. We have made a concerted effort to add more unique scholarships in the last month. We have added over 20 brand-new scholarships in the last couple of weeks.

Our scholarships for Indigenous students work to address the education inequity faced by Indigenous peoples in Alberta by making post-secondary studies more financially accessible.

The $1,500 awards are based on scholastic achievement, financial need and community involvement. Scholarship recipients are selected by an external committee with expertise in academia and Indigenous education.
