It’s that time of year again— is live, and they are accepting applications for their 2020 scholarship program.

TC Energy believes that helping students succeed helps our communities succeed. In 2019, the company received more than 5,000 applications for scholarships and more than 1,000 scholarships were awarded. This year, they plan to award $2 million in scholarships to students across the continent. Applying is easy, and students can answer five quick questions at to see if they pre-qualify. Application deadline has been extended and now closes on June 12, 2020.

TC Energy Scholarships are unique because students receive financial support directly, not through a post-secondary tuition account, so they may remove whatever financial barriers to education they may have.
