Scholarship and Mentorship Program
We’re committed to creating a more equitable and inclusive environment, where everyone truly belongs and can reach their full potential.
We hire and nurture professionals who come from many different backgrounds and cultures, who are willing to challenge the status quo and think differently.

As part of our efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace, we’re excited to offer our PwC Canada Scholarship and Mentorship program.

The scholarship provides financial support to post-secondary students who are Black, Indigenous and/or Persons with Disabilities, studying in accounting, business and/or STEM and demonstrate our five PwC Professional attributes.

  • Up to twenty-five (25) scholarships available.
  • Each scholarship is for C$5,000.
  • Scholarship recipients will be paired with a professional from PwC Canada who’ll provide mentorship and coaching for one year.
  • Scholarship recipients will receive an offer of paid employment at PwC Canada (acceptance of position is optional and won’t impact receipt of scholarship).

The application period for the Scholarship and Mentorship Program is currently closed.

"PwC Canada is a diverse firm that continues to build an environment where everyone can feel safe bringing an authentic version of themselves to work, while feeling heard and seen. As individuals, our unique perspectives make positive impacts on each other, our communities, and the world."

Here is what our scholarship recipients have to say

“This is the ideal offer for any student fresh out of college; a job, a mentor and some financial aid. My mentor assisted me in setting my goals and provided me with guidance on how to achieve them. He was also very accessible, we conducted a number of goal review sessions together. The application process was very smooth and the interviews were very casual and enjoyable. I am truly grateful for this opportunity.”
