Education bursaries and grants

Ready to hit the books? You’re preparing to take your place among the next generation of leaders, and we want to help you reach your education goals.

    It’s expensive to go to school

    Tuition, books, living expenses — education can be a big investment. But it’s an investment in your future, and we don’t want the cost to stand in your way. That’s why Prospera provides education grants to post-secondary students every year.

    Prospera Education Grants

    We know the cost of earning a post-secondary education can add up quickly for students. We are here to help by giving over $50,000 to students through our Prospera Education Grants program. This is our way of supporting new, returning, or mature students with their post-secondary journey for the fall 2022 semester.
