Million Dollar Bursary


 The Million Dollar Bursary Program is now accepting online applications for $1,000 bursaries. If you are a post secondary student between the ages of 17-24, here is your chance to get a bursary just for being a member!​

Bursary Applications are now OPEN!


Our Commitment

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.

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 10 years (2014-2024), representing a total funding pledge of up to $10 million.


What to Expect

Applying for the bursary is easy with our simple online application process. If you are a member of Interior Savings or North Peace Savings (new members welcome!) and attending full time post secondary studies in 2024 or 2025 then now is your chance to submit an application before February 28, 2024 application deadline.


Applications for the 2024/2025 Million Dollar Bursary Program are now OPEN.
