creditcardGenius Scholarship Canada – Helping Canadian students get ahead with their money.

About the creditcardGenius scholarship

creditcardGenius (a WeyMedia Inc. business) proudly announces the second year of providing a scholarship available to Canadian students enrolled in full-time undergraduate or graduate studies. We're looking for a student committed to academic excellence, with outstanding academic achievement, no matter what field of study they are in.

The chosen student will be awarded $2,000 CAD which may be used towards the cost of their studies, helping them get a head start on their personal finance journey as young adults. (To see our 2019 scholarship winner, check out our blog post.)

We understand that it has become increasingly difficult for today's younger generation to finish their studies without carrying large amounts of student debt or credit card debt. As such, learning important money lessons and personal finance habits has become more important now than ever.

Founded in 2017, creditcardGenius has been dedicated to teaching Canadians that being good with money can be easy and fun. Through educating Canadian consumers on how to use credit cards responsibly, financial dreams are within reach after all.

Students can reach their full potential and financial stability. And we want to help in giving the future generation of working men and women a chance to do so by alleviating some of the financial burdens that come with pursuing their studies for an extended period of time through this bursary.
