If you're a high school graduate or mature student, you could receive up to $4,000 ($1,000 annually) for your post-secondary education. Our two scholarships are designed to complement the contributions we make to the schools in our communities, and we can't wait to see how they will help you reach your goals.
The Synergy Shares Scholarship application period is now closed. Thank you to all applicants. Stay tuned for news on the 2023 recipients!

If you are selected as one of the two recipients:
Proof of tuition payment. This can be a receipt of the funds paid.
Verification of full-time studies. This can be a letter of confirmation from the school registrar.

We believe that understanding these concepts is important for future leaders in our community, and we're excited to see how you'll do!
