Applications Open for RBC Future Launch Scholarship
January 23, 2020
RBC Future Launch Scholarship is now open! The scholarship is an innovative, new program for Canadian youth (aged 15 to 29) who are either studying part-time or not currently in school and have the desire to learn something new.
For 2020, there will be 450 scholarships available nation-wide valued at $1,500 each. The scholarship can be used to support a wide range of learning opportunities, including short-term courses, workshops, certificates, or online training – and their associated costs (tuition, travel, tools, books, etc.).
Scholarship recipients will be selected based on their drive, commitment to lifelong learning, and how they plan to use the funds to pursue their chosen learning opportunity. Unlike traditional scholarships, grades and transcripts are not required to apply – and non-traditional reference materials (such as visual arts, music, poetry, video blogs) can be submitted as part of an application.
The scholarship’s first application deadline is April 30, 2020. There will be two subsequent application deadlines for 2020 – August 27 and December 17 – with scholarships being awarded on a rolling 4-6 week basis after the respective deadlines.
