Knowledge First Financial Graduate Scholarship

As Canada’s largest RESP Company, we know first-hand that education savings help students succeed. As an extension of this belief, the company offers scholarships to students who are continuing their education at the graduate level in pursuit of a dream to make a difference.

Each year, scholarships are awarded to exceptional students who have achieved great things in academics and in their community through volunteerism or athletics; their stories are captured in the Graduate Scholarships 2019 presentation.

Congratulations to each recipient of this year’s awards.
