Launched in 2014, CST has a paid summer intern program for CST beneficiaries. We asked them to share their experiences of pursuing a post-secondary degree and how having a CST RESP helped them complete their academic aspirations without worrying about financial debt.

This is Calvin’s story:

One-hundred-thousand-dollars.  Would you believe that’s the price tag that can come with a 4-year University degree while living away from home?

Sounds daunting doesn’t it?  Well Calvin has a very optimistic approach to the financial burden.  

One of the greatest gifts we can give our kids is the gift of education: making a plan when they are young to be able to help fund their education after high school.

With just a little savvy spending and saving on our part throughout their childhood, we can offer them the ability to pursue a post-secondary education of their choice and dreams, relieve them of the burden of debt to pay for that education, and open up more opportunities for knowledge and career paths.

It’s difficult for me to comprehend how my parents ever looked upon my newborn face, and thought to themselves, “This child will go to university.” But, I’m sure glad they did.

It was my parents, holding my fragile body in their arms, smiling as I cried furiously into the world, who had faith not only in who I was, but who I would one day become. Their decision to invest in the Canadian Scholarship Trust Plan began the first of many conversations they, and I, would share.
