When everyone moves forward together, success takes care of itself.
Your backing has helped us grow the roots we need to continue to grow and scale our impact. Resourceful Canadians will overcome our country's most significant challenges through entrepreneurial skillsets and mindsets.
We believe in the VFC Fellowship Program scholarships because they remove financial barriers that can limit young Canadians from realizing their fullest entrepreneurial potential.”

“The fellowship scholarship was the difference between attending training camp and not. Coming right out of school there isn’t a great opportunity to save up for the program. I am grateful because this program would not have been possible, yet it has changed my career trajectory and connected me with an amazing network of people.”
“It’s fascinating how simple exposure to ambition can begin normalizing otherwise intimidating endeavours. VFCs community is rich with individuals who materialize their vision and creativity through hard work. In the process, they leave a meaningful impact on the world through either the creation of their own ventures or their involvement in existing ones. It was the ability to have more individuals experience the magic of this exposure and community that inspired me to donate to the Fellowship scholarship program, and I can’t wait to see how the next generation of Fellows foster what they learn here.”
