Royal Roads University Student Association (RRUSA) Award

Value: $2,000

This award was established in 1997 and funded through annual contributions by students at Royal Roads University through RRUSA fees up to 2016. Royal Roads matched contributions up to 2008.

Enhancing student life at the University is a goal of the RRUSA. This award will be available to individuals who have made a significant contribution to the Royal Roads campus community and/or their home community. The purpose of this award is to reward students who selflessly dedicate time and energy into building a wider sense of community, for example beyond the borders of their cohort. Students in condensed programs who have less time to budget for this extra-curricular activity during study may describe their contribution to their community that occurred in the year leading up to enrollment at Royal Roads.


  • RRUSA member in good standing
  • Recent community involvement beyond the requirements of the academic program or paid employment
  • Preference will be shown for a candidate who demonstrated reasonable financial need in the case of a tie
