GGC-Québec Council Scholarship

Scholarship logo

The Quebec Council is proud to offer the following scholarships to our members.

Hay Foundation Scholarship - $1,000. The objective is to encourage further education/training at a recognized post-secondary institution such as CEGEP, technical/vocational school or university.

Loyalty Scholarship: awarded to a girl member who completes all branches in Guiding – Sparks to Rangers. It recognizes the girl’s continued involvement in GGC.

Eagle Scholarship: awarded to a girl member of Indigenous decent. The Eagle’s feathers symbolize a step forward, a new chapter in the ongoing story of Reconciliation. This scholarship is part of that journey by establishing equity with funding. We invite Indigenous youth to apply for this award provided they meet the criteria.

Who can apply?
Any registered Québec member of Girl Guides of Canada–Guides du Canada who is entering or pursuing post-secondary education (in any field of study) on a full-time basis. Former Guiders are not eligible to apply. This scholarship is based on active Guiding and community involvement.

Application deadline: June 1 of each year
