Student environmental leaders awarded 2013 Toyota Earth Day Scholarships

Cultivating Tomorrow’s Environmental Leaders
Every day, in communities across Canada, young people are actively demonstrating their passion for the environment through the important work they accomplish. These dedicated young Canadians are emerging as tomorrow's environmental leaders and advocates.

Toyota Canada and the Toyota Canada Foundation in partnership with Earth Day Canada established the Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program to help cultivate and nurture this environmental leadership. The Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program encourages and rewards graduating Canadian high school students who have distinguished themselves through environmental community service, extracurricular and volunteer activities, and academic excellence. To date, Toyota Canada, the Toyota Canada Foundation and Earth Day Canada (EDC) have awarded 160 students with $800 000 in scholarships. The Toyota Earth Day Scholarship is Canada's best recognized environmental entrance scholarship.

Environmental issues are increasingly being tackled through multidisciplinary approaches. Future environmental leaders will therefore come from a broad range of academic backgrounds which is why the Toyota Earth Day Scholarship is offered to students entering their first year of post-secondary studies in the discipline of their choice, to prepare themselves for the career of their choice.

The Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program grants 20 awards of $5 000 each annually, to be applied directly towards tuition, books, room and board (where applicable) or other educational expenses for post-secondary full-time studies in Canada.

Regional panels of community, business and environmental leaders will select the winners who best meet the selection criteria. Awards will be granted in five geographic areas:

  • Atlantic Canada
  • Quebec
  • Ontario
  • Western Canada / Northwest Territories / Nunavut
  • British Columbia / Yukon

A national winner - selected from the 20 regional winners - will also be awarded the Toyota Earth Day Scholarship National Award at the National Award Ceremony.

The 2013 Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program application deadline has now passed. The application deadline was February 15, 2013. Winners will be notified in April 2013.
