The Girl Guides of Canada National Scholarship Program recognizes the extraordinary accomplishments of Girl Guide members and supports them as they work towards the future they’ve been dreaming of.

No matter what you aspire to become – an engineer, an artist, an entrepreneur, or something else entirely – Girl Guides National Scholarships are here to support you as you take the exciting next step of post-secondary education.

Applications for the 2022 National Scholarships will be open from February 15 to March 20.

Requirements for applicants

  1. Applicants must be currently registered* GGC members. 
    * Members who did not register for Guiding from 2020-2022 due to the pandemic must include their last iMIS# and information about their tenure to be considered for a GGC scholarship. 
  2. Scholarships are conditional on acceptance or continuation at a recognized post-secondary institution in a full or part-time program.
    This includes universities, colleges and vocational schools where high school completion is the normal entrance requirement (unless entering as an adult student). 
  3. Applicants must remain a Girl Guides of Canada member for the 2022-23 Guiding year. 
    Recipients are expected to make reasonable efforts to continue their involvement in Guiding.
