The Foundation provides funding for the CU Succeed Youth Bursary program open to resident Ontario post-secondary students in need of financial assistance for academic, technological, or vocational training.

The bursary will be awarded based primarily on two criteria – demonstrated financial need, and community involvement.

When reviewing the application, we also consider:
• Applicants (or their parent) must belong to a credit union which is a member of Ontario Credit Union Foundation (listing here). To receive an award the award recipient must have a credit union account in their own name.
• Youth is defined as age 25 by June 30, of the application year. (Prior bursary recipients continuing their studies are eligible beyond age 25.)
• Programs of study may be academic, vocational, or technical at an accredited post-secondary institution in Canada or abroad.
• Available to those pursuing a college diploma, undergraduate degree, or red seal. [OCUF will support individual seeking their first bachelor’s degree.]
• Acceptable grades (65% or higher) are required.
• Applicants must be Ontario residents and Canadian Citizens or have a permanent resident card.
• Graduate and post graduate students are not eligible.
