Each scholarship includes full tuition at any accredited university or college in Canada, mentorship opportunities, $7,500 a year for living expenses and an offer of summer employment within TD Bank Group for up to four years. The scholarship is valued at up to $70,000.

Since 1995, TD Scholarships for Community Leadership have been awarded to over 340 recipients, as part of TD's commitment to education and stronger communities.
