The caisse contributes to various scholarship programs to encourage young people to pursue higher education. That's why we encourage you to sign up on the Desjardins scholarship platform.
The application period runs from March 1 to March 31 each year. By creating your profile, you'll have access to multiple scholarship programs (Desjardins Foundation scholarships, caisse scholarships and others).
Every year, the caisse supports local elementary schools by providing assistance for various educational projects for students.
Are you a school principal on our territory who wants to submit a project? Here's what you need to do:
Every year, we'll support at least 1 project that hasn't received a Desjardins Foundation Prize.
|October 3 to 21, 2022||Projects are submitted using the partnership application form|
|Week of December 12, 2022||Projects are analyzed by the caisse's board of directors|
|December 2022||Decisions are sent to schools|
|January 2023||Funding is awarded to the winning schools|
So what's the difference between the caisse's program and Desjardins Foundation Prizes?
Desjardins Foundation Prizes are for enthusiastic teachers and school workers who would like to get financial assistance of up to $3,000 to run projects with kindergarten, elementary or high school students. It's a program to support individual classes and groups, not whole schools.
Desjardins Group directors and employees vote to select the winning projects.
