Meet our 2021 CU Succeed Youth Bursary Recipients

This year we provided bursaries to 69 amazing young adults who are pursuing post-secondary education.

Recipients are selected based on two main criteria, financial need and how they give back to their communities. Students are assessed by a review panel across four categories; community involvement, personal circumstances, letters of reference, and quality of their compelling essay or video submission. Students are ranked numerically with the top of the list individuals receiving a bursary of $3,000, the other candidates received amounts of $2,000, $1,500 and $1,000 totalling $75,000. 

Bursary recipients represented 28 credit unions in Ontario.
