H&R Block launches scholarship program

H&R Block Canada has begun an initiative called the “Future Finance Experts Scholarship” in collaboration with education planning company MyBlueprint. The initiative will provide 10 $3,000 scholarships to high school students preparing for post-secondary education. Students can apply until April 26. Eighty finalists will be selected randomly. The winners will be chosen by a judging panel based on essays by the finalists. As part of the effort, MyBlueprint will provide a collection of tax information for students on its website.

“We're thrilled to announce this new scholarship fund to support the finance experts of tomorrow,” said Peter Bruno, president of H&R Block Canada. “Community support is at the core of our organization. Though we're the largest tax preparer in the country, we're also very much community members, having nearly 1,000 locations in the heart of towns and cities across Canada. We want to help usher in the next generation of finance experts by supporting students with post-secondary tuition and by offering tax education to build financial literacy skills.”
