Opening doors to a brighter future
TELUS Friendly Future Foundation® Social Impact Bursaries are awarded annually to more than 500 students experiencing critical financial need who are committed to making a difference in their communities.
Invest in your future
Post-secondary education opens doors to a brighter future for youth and their families. Unfortunately, not all youth have the resources needed to attend college or university. According to Statistics Canada and a 2022 survey conducted by Angus Reid, graduating students owe an average of $28,000, while two in five students are considering withdrawing from their studies altogether.
While many student award programs focus on recognizing academic achievement, we will enable those in financial need to have an opportunity to thrive through higher education. In addition, the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation Social Impact Bursary is for students who are driven to make the world a better place by taking on a social impact project.
Recipients of the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation Social Impact Bursary will receive a bursary valued at $3,000 (college) or $5,000 (university) to put toward tuition fees at Canadian post-secondary institutions.
TELUS Friendly Future Foundation Social Impact Bursary is also available to students directly through the financial aid offices at our partners below
