Awards and Scholarships
As a Sea Cadet, you are eligible to apply for a number of awards, scholarships and bursaries. All applications should be started by speaking with your Divisional Officer and making an application through the Administration Officer. Generally speaking, for awards from outside agencies, you must apply by the last parade night in February. For awards within our our Corps or Branch, nominations should be made by mid-April.
The Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Service Medal is awarded by The Navy League of Canada in recognition of continuous Cadet service of at least four (4) years by deserving Royal Canadian Sea Cadets.
Interested cadets who have successfully completed four (4) calendar years (continuous from enrolment date) of distinguished service are to submit their application to the Administration Officer NOT LATER THAN the end of the last training night in February for the recommendation of the Commanding Officer.
Awards and Medals from other organizations
Sea Cadets may be nominated a number of awards and medals as listed below. If you feel someone in the corps should be considered, let your Divisional Officer and Administration Officer know by the last training night in February. Recommendations and decisions for final nominations are made by the officer staff and then submitted to the Regional Cadet Support Unit or the Vancouver Island Division of the Navy League of Canada for final approval.
Information about awards from the Navy League can be found on the Navy League Awards page
