Changing Lives Award

Value: $7,000

Education is an opportunity that should be available to all but for some it’s not financially possible. The Changing Lives Award seeks to help change that.  Through competition, this award will make a significant contribution to the tuition of passionate, outstanding Royal Roads students who want to make a difference in the world.

The cost of education and living will exceed the value of this award, so it must not be the only means by which an eligible candidate will fund their education. Eligible candidates will be able to demonstrate a reasonable plan for addressing the balance of funding required and make practical choices for affordability.

Applicant Criteria

  • Demonstrate in writing how this award would overcome a financial barrier that is preventing the candidate from attending Royal Roads University
  • Describe the choices being made to reduce education and/or living costs (e.g. taking a blended delivery format of the program that might support the ability to work, plans to conduct research on local issues to save travel expenses, opts out of programs with an international component, etc.).
  • Describe how attending Royal Roads University would be a life-changing opportunity, and the positive influence their education would have on others.
  • Preference may be given to applicants demonstrating leadership or service in their community.
