Scholarship of the Week

Digging up Scholarship Treasure for AU Students

Scholarship name: TransCanada Community Leaders Scholarship

Sponsored by: TransCanada

Deadline: April 15, 2017

Potential payout: $1000 (up to 100 scholarships available)

Eligibility restriction: Applications must be from a community near a TransCanada project or proposed project (see map), must be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada or the U.S., and must be enrolled or planning to enrol full-time at a post-secondary institution. See full eligibility requirements.

What’s required: A completed online application form, including personal, student, and financial information, a 400-word essay describing your community involvement, and a 400-word essay describing your education and career goals.

Tips: You have the option to upload up to five supporting documents, such as reference letters from employers or community groups. The application requirements are imbedded in the multi-page online application. This means you’ll need to complete each page before seeing what the requirements are for the next (and the essay question info doesn’t appear until the fourth page.) However, you can return to previous pages and the form appears to retain completed info even if you exit the site.
