Competitive Scholarship

At Foresters, our purpose is to enrich the lives of our members, their families and their communities. We understand the high costs associated with post-secondary education and want to award students for their hard work by providing them with the opportunity to receive a Competitive Scholarship award. We offer up to 300 tuition scholarships of up to $2,500 each year to young leaders who demonstrate exceptional leadership through community service and a commitment to academics.

“The Foresters Competitive Scholarship has definitely helped me come closer to achieving my dreams of helping people around me.”
Anjeli Macarenas, 2020 scholarship winner

Students who are in their first, second, or third year of their post-secondary education and are first-time applicants must apply using the new scholarship application. You’ll find award details, application guidelines and eligibility criteria below.

The returning candidate application must be completed by previous and current scholarship award recipients or students who had applied for a scholarship previously and were declined. Please visit our returning candidates page.

COVID-19 exception for 2022-23 scholarships

Due to the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic presented for students working to earn community service hours, we have decreased the number of hours required for the 2022-23 scholarship year for new scholarship applicants and returning candidates. Please refer to the COVID-19 exception section in the guidelines and FAQs below to learn more.
