With education being a critical part in helping prepare youth for the future, we’re excited to share that TD is launching its first ever Scholarship Program for Indigenous Peoples in partnership with AFOA Canada (Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of Canada), a not-for-profit led by Indigenous Peoples.
The program will offer 25 scholarships to deserving high school and university students, and will cover $15,000 per year, for up to 4 years. In addition, successful students will have the opportunity to join TD for a summer internship experience and will have the opportunity to build their network through mentorship and career development programs.
This scholarship will be one of the largest of its kind among Canada’s major banks and launched across Canada on November 18, 2022. Regardless of your field of study, scholarships are open to First Nations, Metis and Inuit who are members / citizen of a First Nation, Metis or Inuit community.
Students from the Indigenous community face unique challenges and systemic barriers that can make getting a post-secondary education difficult. Through TD’s scholarship program, the goal is to ensure more students from Indigenous communities have the financial freedom and stability to explore and have the benefit of a post-secondary education and work experience.
