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 2017 and must be beginning post-secondary education this fall.
Applications for the Scholarship Program will be open starting April 1st, 2017. Completed application forms must be submitted by August 31st, 2017 and must contain an official school transcript of final year credits.
