BURSARY PROGRAMS

​Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. A solid education is invaluable – and it’s an investment we’re proud to make through our bursary programs.

Million Dollar Bursary Program

​Since 2013, we've provided up to 1,000 bursaries of $1,000 each year to students between the ages of 17-24 years old.

To our 2019/2020 bursary applicants,

With many businesses closed and recommendations to stay at home, we recognize it could be harder for students to meet the requirements of our bursary program. To assist students during these challenging times, we have temporarily loosened our bursary criteria. Please read our updated eligibility criteria, and email any questions to milliondollarbursary@interiorsavings.com


Our Commitment

To help support our young members in furthering their education, Interior Savings has introduced The Million Dollar Bursary as a component of our Member Rewards program. The Million Dollar Bursary will provide up to 1,000 post-secondary bursaries, each valued at $1,000, to students between the ages of 17-24 years old.

Interior Savings has made a commitment to providing this bursary for 8 years (2014-2021), representing a total funding pledge of up to $8 million.

​Applications for the 2020 Million Dollar Bursary Program are now closed.

Sign-up here if you wish to be notified when the application period re-opens in September.
