The Legion is committed to supporting Veterans and their families by offering financial assistance for post-secondary education to those in need.

Student Bursaries/Scholarships


As part of the Legion’s commitment to Veterans and their families, Legion Branches may grant bursaries through the Poppy Trust Fund to the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Canadian Veterans who need financial assistance to pursue a post-secondary education. These bursaries can make a difference for Veterans’ families and offers these children an opportunity to pursue their educational aspirations. Bursaries may be granted at any stage of a college or university program.

Branches and Commands develop their eligibility requirements, deadlines and application procedures, which can vary regionally. Please contact your local Legion Branch for more information.
