How could $750 set you up for success as your exit your gap year?

Wherever your next steps take you, a CanGap Gap Year Alum Scholarship can help.


Applications for our 23/24 Gappers will open in SPRING 2024.

Didn't get a chance to check-off everything on your gap year to-do list? Ready to launch that business you've been working on all year? Invested in your growth all year and now could use a little vacay?


Well, $750 can help you do that!


Our annual CanGap Gap Year Alum Scholarship is awarded to a gap year alum who is looking to lay a solid foundation for their future that combines purpose and passion.

Solo Trip

Scholarships are open to students who are:

  • Canadian Citizens, permanent residents or refugees

  • Completing their gap year and transitioning onto their next step (whether that be school, work, or another gap year!).

  • Between the ages of 17 and 25


In May, we offer one $750 scholarship to a new Gapper starting a gap year AND one $750 scholarship to a soon-to-be gap year alum as they prepare for their post-gap year plans

The CanGap Gap Year Scholarship fund is supported by our board of directors, donors, and alum who are passionate about supporting gap year students who may not have the finances they need to reach their gap year goals.

Here’s what the CanGap
Gap Year Scholarship is:

  • An opportunity to accomplish a few more gap year goals

  • A financial cushion that helps you move forward with confidence

  • A kick-start as you prepare for what's next!

And here's what it's not:

  • A Netflix fund

  • An endless supply of pizza 

  • An excuse to do nothing with your year

  • Money to spend on tuition

What we expect as a CanGap
Gap Year Scholarship recipient:

  • Make good use of the $750 towards your post-gap year plans (obvi!)

See terms and conditions for full details

You’ll also receive the opportunity to earn the Student of Leadership and Humanity Award as a gap year alum and prove to the world your potential!
