Air Cadet League of Canada Post Secondary Scholarship

The Air Cadet League of Canada is pleased to offer post-secondary education scholarships to Royal Canadian Air Cadets.



A) Scholarships are open to students who are entering or pursuing their post-secondary education, and who are members of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets on April 1st, 2024.

B) Scholarships are also open to past cadets entering their first year in post-secondary education who aged out of cadets because they reached 19 between April 2nd 2023 and April 1st, 2024.

Scholarships are awarded on the basis of scholastic achievement, combined with outstanding performance as an Air Cadet, community involvement, and donor’s requirements.

The educational portion of the evaluation will be based on High School or Secondary V latest marks even if you are already at your first or second year of post-secondary education. A copy of the most recently available Transcript of Marks from either the High School, or from the Ministry of Education is required.


Some scholarships are offered to all cadets while some are restricted to cadets that will be studying in a specific field (e.g. Engineering, Science, Vocational, Aviation, Aerospace and others). Other scholarships are offered to cadets that belong to specific communities, such as aboriginal or visible minorities, or who meet other requirements, as stipulated by the donors.
