Poppy Trust Fund Bursaries.

As part of the Legion’s commitment to Veterans and their families, Legion Branches may grant bursaries through the Poppy Trust Fund to the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of Veterans who need financial assistance to pursue a post-secondary education. These bursaries can make a difference for Veterans’ families and offers these children an opportunity to further their educational goals. Bursaries may be granted at any stage of a college or university program.

The Legion does not have a national-level bursary program. Local Branches and Provincial Commands develop their eligibility requirements, deadlines and application procedures. Contact the local Legion Branch in your area for further information and assistance.

Scholarships

As part of the Legion’s commitment to youth, many Branches award scholarships through their General Funds to recognize scholastic achievement and support youth in their community. Criteria for these funds are established by the Branch.

For information on bursaries and scholarships available in your province or community, please contact the Legion branch nearest you.
