Bank of Canada Scholarship and Work Placement Program
The Bank of Canada is proud to introduce a new scholarship and work placement program for students with disabilities and indigenous students.
Each year, two full-time students with disabilities and two full-time indigenous students will each be awarded a scholarship of $4,000 toward tuition costs, combined with the possibility of a paid summer or part-time (during the academic year) work placement at the Bank of Canada.
We’d love to hear from you if you meet the eligibility criteria and are currently enrolled in full-time undergraduate or post-graduate studies in economics, finance and accounting, business or public administration, communications, information technology, human resources or law.
Work placement opportunities will be determined based on the recipient’s field of study and the Bank’s departmental business requirements. Recipients who reside or attend a post-secondary institution outside of the National Capital Region may be offered the option of working at one of the Bank’s regional offices: Halifax, Montréal, Toronto, Calgary or Vancouver.
You will be evaluated on the key requirements listed below, which must be demonstrated by your curriculum vitae, your most recent transcript and a 100-300 word essay about yourself, your decision to pursue your field of study and your career interests. If you are selected as one of the top five candidates, you will be invited to an interview (either in person, by phone or virtually).
• Overall average mark of a minimum 70 per cent
• Career interests that are relevant to work performed at the Bank of Canada
• Pursuing studies in economics, finance and accounting, business or public administration, communications, information technology, human resources or law
We are accepting applications and supporting documents until 1 November 2015.
