Awards and Scholarships

The Navy League of Canada recognizes the importance of post-secondary education to the future success of its Cadet members.

Other Cadet Scholarships

The Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Education Foundation funds a variety of scholarships valued at $5,000, $3,000, $2,000 and $1000, including the Chief Petty Officer Jack Scholarship.

The Young Citizens Foundation donates $5,000 annually to support a Sea Cadet pursuing higher education. The Navy League of Canada identifies and selects the recipient from the pool of Top Sea Cadet nominees entering their first year of post-secondary studies. The Cadet cannot be directly entering the Royal Canadian Navy, the Canadian Coast Guard College, or the Royal Military College.

Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is an optional, non-competitive program designed to encourage young people to develop positive skills and lifestyle habits. The awards program recognizes the activities of the Sea Cadet Program; however, there is no longer a direct link to CJCR and the Awards Centre.
