Schulich Leaders

A Schulich Leader is one of 50 students who are selected each year by our 20 partner universities to receive $100,000 or $80,000 to pursue an undergraduate degree in STEM. In addition to this large financial award, they join an elite network and receive many ongoing benefits.

Since 2012, 320 Schulich Leaders have been awarded this prestigious STEM scholarship across Canada.

Science
 
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
 
"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. - J.K. Rowling"
 
What is a little known fact about you?
 
I have been singing, both on my own and in a choir, for over ten years.
 
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
I really want to make a difference, wherever I go. I know that change always has to start with one person, and I'm not opposed to that one person being me. I know that leadership isn't about being in charge, or being the most important. Leadership is about taking your own ideas and the ideas of the people around you and combining them to make something beautiful.
