Other Scholarship Opportunities

Consolidated Credit Canada and Seneca College have partnered together over the last three years to award students dedicated to personal financial empowerment with the funds they need to graduate with as little student debt as possible. Our Financial Empowerment Awards grant two awardees $2500 each for demonstrating how they plan to use that money to achieve their financial goals. To date, our winners have expressed the need for further financial literacy support at all levels of education. Student awardees also state that the growing cost of education coupled with the high cost of student debt puts graduates at a disadvantage when it comes to achieving milestones like purchasing cars and homes. As Canada’s largest non-profit credit counselling organization, we take these statements to heart and are working hard to expand our financial empowerment awards to students and organizations across the country.

Other Winners

We’d also like to announce the two winners of the $2,500 Consolidated Credit Financial Empowerment Award, administered and awarded to students at Seneca College. They are Misun Chun and Brock Csada. Congratulations!
