Troop 17 Scholarship

The RCMP's Troop 17 Scholarship was established to recognize students who have made significant efforts toward the prevention of bullying and harassment in their schools and/or communities. Up to five scholarships in the amount of $1000 will be awarded annually to full-time college or university students.

Background

The creation of the Troop 17 Scholarship was part of the Merlo-Davidson settlement agreement, and is one of the many initiatives the RCMP is implementing to help support the elimination of harassment from our schools, communities, and workplaces.

The scholarship is named after the first troop of women to attend the RCMP Academy in Regina, Saskatchewan, and be hired as regular members of the RCMP. The women of Troop 17 pushed through the challenges that come with working in a male-dominated career, and paved the way for many others who followed in their footsteps. One of these women was Beverley Busson, who received many honours for her service within the Force, and in 2006 became the first woman to serve as Commissioner of the RCMP.

Eligibility Criteria

To be considered for the Troop 17 Scholarship, all applicants must:
