Scholarship terms

3. Each scholarship consists of one (1) lump-sum payment in the amount of CDN $5,000 and an optional job offer commencing in 2024 with PwC Canada. Successful candidates offered employment as an “Associate” will receive an employment agreement setting out the specific terms and conditions of the offer.

4. If you plan to attend a program outside of Canada as part of a year-abroad program you are still eligible to apply provided you are participating in an exchange program as part of your course curriculum at a recognized publicly funded Canadian post-secondary institution and your degree is issued from a recognized publicly funded Canadian post-secondary institution.

5. PwC reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify, amend (including extending the Scholarship application deadline) or cancel this Scholarship program at any time without individual notice.
6. By entering this Scholarship competition you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, the records of PwC and the decisions of the PwC’s Scholarship selection panel, whose records and decisions shall be deemed final, conclusive and binding in all matters.

Key dates and deadlines

7. Completed applications must be submitted online between February 1st to February 28th, 2023. Submissions must be made online.

How to apply

​​​​​​​10. Potential Scholarship recipients (in the case of minors, a parent or legal guardian) will be required to sign a Declaration of Compliance, Publicity and Liability Release before being awarded a Scholarship. 

11. Employees and Partners of PwC and its subsidiaries and/or restricted clients, and any dependents of any of the foregoing are not eligible for the Scholarships.

Personal information

12. You certify that all the information provided on the application form and in all the accompanying documents is true, accurate, and complete to the best of your knowledge. You understand that the provision of false information will render you ineligible for this Scholarship program. 

13. During your online application, Canada's anti-spam legislation (CASL) requires us to obtain your consent so that we can continue to send you email messages containing information we think you might be interested in including our thought leadership publications, industry newsletters and invitations to PwC events. You may withdraw your consent at any time. If you have already provided your consent to PwC in the past, you may ignore this request. Please be aware that, even if you do not provide your express consent, PwC may still contact you if we are authorized under CASL. For example, we may contact you if you have recently entered into a transaction with us (and therefore, we have your implied consent under CASL) as well as for business purposes. We take our anti-spam and privacy legislation obligations seriously. We only use your personal information, including your email address, for the purposes you have consented to.

14. During your online application PwC requires you to confirm if you consent to having your personal data processed by PwC for the purpose of recruitment for other positions or programs than the one you’ve initially applied for. In the case you do not provide consent, your data will be removed from the PwC system in accordance with local legal, audit, and tax requirements of the member firm to which you have applied, after closing the recruitment process for the position to which you registered and, as a result, will not be taken into account for any future recruitment processes.
