FPCBP Scholarships

The FPCBP Scholarship Program is the oldest and largest Scholarship Program of its kind in the Portuguese Canadian Community across Canada. In 2022, to commemorate the Federation’s milestone 40th anniversary, 40 scholarships were awarded to deserving Luso-Canadian students, and in the year prior a record-breaking 45 scholarships were awarded.  With the extraordinary support of sponsors, the FPCBP Scholarship Program has successfully rewarded to date, over $1.5 Million Dollars CDN, to deserving students in pursuit of higher education. We have come to learn over the years, that some of the recipients have successfully pursued career paths as Construction Engineers, Financial Advisors, University Professors, Doctors, Scientists, Journalists, Lawyers, and the list goes on.

With the increasing number of qualified applicants, we continue to rely on the generosity of our Sponsors to fund these awards. We invite corporations, businesses, and individuals to become a Scholarship Award(s) Sponsor. Through your generosity, you are eligible to participate in the new FPCBP Mentoring Program and together, help inspire our vibrant Portuguese Canadian students on their academic journey in pursuit of their goals, empowering them to become future leaders of our community and at the global level.

Proudly honouring tradition, we will host the 40th Annual Scholarship and Excellence Awards Gala in-person on Saturday, March 25th, 2023 at the Pearson Convention Centre in Brampton, Ontario. We wish to acknowledge and thank Mr. Fernando Branco and the superb Culinary and Service Team at the Pearson Convention Centre for their unwavering support and dedication to the FPCBP for more than a decade.
