ECO Canada Scholarship Program is Accepting Applications

ECO Canada awards four Canadian students annually with $2,500 towards their first-year tuition in an environment-related program at any Canadian post-secondary institution. An environment-related program can include, but is not limited to, engineering, sciences, social sciences, and mathematics.

Qualified students are chosen based on a reference letter and an essay about their environmental accomplishments and ambitions.

To qualify for the ECO Canada scholarship students must:

  • Graduate from high school in 2011
