Launched in 2020, the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph BIG Futures Scholarship Program is dedicated to ensuring the success of future generations of Canadians, providing them with additional supports to succeed in their educational aspirations.
The BIG Futures Scholarship Program was designed to encourage and support students who have been involved in a mentoring program with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph, and are entering their first year of post-secondary education.
In 2020, four scholarships were offered to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Guelph youth who are pursuing their educational dreams. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for these remarkable young adults, and we are excited to continue to build this initiative in the years to come.
If you or your child is beginning post-secondary studies at a registered institution in September 2021 or January 2022 and is interested in applying for this scholarship, please review the Program Guidelines above and stay tuned for more information, coming soon!
