Scholarships for Post-Secondary Students

John Eisner Financial Literacy Scholarship

Each year, offers several $1,000 scholarships to post-secondary students across Atlantic Canada. Since 2004, we have awarded more than $200,000 to deserving students.

About the Scholarship

John Eisner was President & CEO of (formerly Credit Counselling Services of Atlantic Canada) for nearly 30 years. He believed strong financial literacy is the cornerstone of future financial freedom and was commited to fostering financial literacy in young people. 

John immortalized the phrase “we can help,” and the John Eisner Financial Literacy Scholarship aims to carry on this legacy by providing students with the skills and habits needed to minimize post-secondary debt and use credit wisely.

The 2024/25 Scholarship is now closed.
