CSCB Scholarships Information

The application for 2019 CSCB scholarships is now open! Deadline is July 26!

The CSCB National Scholarship, the CSCB Guy Graveline Scholarship, and the new scholarship for undergraduate students are national scholarships funded and administered by the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers.

The CSCB National and the CSCB Guy Graveline scholarships are worth CDN $3,500 each and will be awarded to two students on the basis of academic results and other achievements, experiences and personal goals. Students entering any accredited college or university program are eligible to apply.

NEW! For the first time this year, a third scholarship of $3500 will be awarded to a student returning to any accredited Canadian college or university program for their second, third or fourth year, based on academic performance as well as other achievements, experiences and personal goals. Once again, the student must be a child, stepchild, grandchild or person under the legal guardianship of an individual who is employed with a CSCB member firm. In fact, for all three scholarships, you may qualify if you are employed by a CSCB member firm and considering opportunities for continuing your own education at college or university.
