Canada provides our military with the best training and equipment in the world but we must also ensure that when these soldiers return home to the "new battlefield" of challenges due to physical and mental injuries or the social challenges of reintegrating into family and community life that they are provided with the same level of support. This support must be based on the best evidence possible resulting from research from the best and brightest Canada has to offer.
To this end, The Royal Canadian Legion is proud to award an annual entrance scholarship of $30,000 ($15,000/year for 2 years) to a Master’s level student specializing in research related to Veterans and their families.
