Opening doors to a brighter future
TELUS Student Bursaries are awarded annually to more than 400 students experiencing critical financial need who are committed to making a difference in their communities.
Investing in tomorrow’s leaders
Post-secondary education opens doors to a brighter future for youth and their families. Unfortunately, for too many young people in Canada, the milestone of starting college or university is also a time marked by financial stress, with the average Canadian undergraduate leaving post-secondary school heavily in debt.
The TELUS Student Bursary provides financial assistance to deserving young people across the country who are committed to giving back in their local communities by taking on a social impact project.
Recipients receive a bursary valued at $3,000 (college) or $5,000 (university) to put toward tuition fees at Canadian post-secondary institutions.
