Supporting The Pursuit of Higher Learning

Not only do we understand the importance of educating our members themselves, we also believe in the role of education within the community. More specifically, we offer a number of scholarships to help dependents of our members’ families pursue further education.

Johnson Inc. 2018 Scholarship Program Opens April 2, 2018.

Building on our History of Supporting Customers and Communities

For many Canadian students, the jump from high school to post-secondary education is a thrilling transition into adulthood, but one that comes with new financial responsibilities.
At Johnson, we understand the challenges faced by students during their pursuit of higher education, and we are proud to offer scholarships to help them achieve their dreams. Since 1998, Johnson has awarded over 1500 scholarships valued at more than $1 million to support young Canadians coast to coast in pursuing their post-secondary education.

This year, we are pleased to offer 50 scholarships worth $1000 each to students who have an auto or home policy through Johnson (or their parent/guardian or grandparent), or have a parent or grandparent who is a member/employee of a Johnson sponsor/client group, or who are children and grandchildren of Johnson employees.

Students must have completed high school in 2018 and must be beginning post-secondary education this fall.

Applications for the Scholarship Program will be open starting April 2, 2018. Completed application forms must be submitted by August 31st, 2018 and must contain an official school transcript of final year credits.

CLC Youth Scholarship

The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) Young Workers Program and the United Way Centraide Canada (UWCC) are pleased to present the second annual CLC/UWCC Post-Secondary Scholarship.

The CLC and the UWCC are long-time partners in taking action to create prosperous, inclusive, diverse and respectful communities, safer workplaces, and a fairer Canada for working people. Last year, we created a post-secondary scholarship in recognition of the important opportunities college or university education can provide for young people.
Too often, these opportunities are out of reach for working-class people due to ever-increasing tuition fees.

This $2,500 scholarship is offered in recognition of the efforts and commitment of young workers across Canada who have demonstrated a commitment to positively impacting social and workplace issues in their community.

The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday, June 1, 2018.
