About Scholarship

Submissions will be reviewed by Toronto and Region Conservation Foundation’s volunteer selection committee. Special consideration will be given to students who demonstrate leadership through volunteer and extracurricular activities. While academic excellence is important, scholarships will not necessarily be awarded to students with the highest marks. Scholarship winners  will be well-rounded leaders who are active in their communities and epitomize the ideals of conservation. The committee’s award decisions will be final.
