At Sunova we know that nothing empowers youth and strengthens communities like education, and we’d like to help.
Each year we award a deserving student with a $7,500 Sunova scholarship. The recipient of this award will be a well-rounded individual who has focused both on educational achievements and community involvement. We’re looking for someone who embodies the same values as Sunova: innovative spirit, trusted integrity, genuine connections, feisty independence, trailblazing success, and happy smiles. Our ideal candidate will be someone who has made a lasting impact on everyone he or she knows and who is loved by the community. Our successful candidate strives for excellence and never settles for second place.
The application for the Sunova scholarship will be available on our website from February 1 to March 31 every year. Interested applicants must submit an online application, as we don’t accept paper applications.
- Sunova will open the online application form and start accepting submissions on February 1.
- Submissions close as of 11:59 pm on March 31. We will not accept late submissions.

- The award of $7,500 will be provided once confirmation of enrolment in an accredited post-secondary institution has been provided to Sunova. Sunova will transfer the funds via a cheque to the applicant (unless the applicant requests for Sunova to send it directly to the educational institution).
