Make extraordinary possible, together.

The road to completing a university education is never easy. Help make someone’s journey at Royal Roads be the life-changing, world-expanding, change-making experience it should be.

Your donation today will support students in vitally important ways by providing what’s needed most, right when it’s needed.

Students need financial support in two key areas:

Entrance Awards

Provide much-needed financial aid to new students who share Royal Roads values by demonstrating academic excellence, dedication to their community, or overcoming exceptional challenges. Receiving an Entrance Award can make all the difference to someone being able to start their study at Royal Roads with the confidence – and financial backing – to finish.

Life Happens Bursaries

Provide financial support to RRU students when unforeseen challenges arise – like laptop repairs, broken glasses, or a costly prescription. This fund was created by an alum like you to offer help and encouragement when a student is facing unexpected hardship that impacts their studies.

Your donation matched – dollar for dollar – up to $32,500!

Together, we can make extraordinary things happen.

We know recent events have made it harder for students to financially “make ends meet”. Your support of awards for students navigating a difficult path is a great way for alumni who ask, “how can I help?” to make a difference.

Thanks to generous donors like you and President Philip Steenkamp’s personal commitment of $10,000, we are able to match your donations to this appeal up to $32,500 so we can help as many students as possible.

Together, you and other extraordinary graduates like you can meet this rising need and change the lives of future leaders.
