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.

Integrated Science
 
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
 
"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving." -Albert Einstein
 
What is a little known fact about you?
 
I once won a bottle of hot sauce in a dragon boat surprise race.
 
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
Throughout my own life, I have been inspired by the people who led me. This has motivated me to develop into a leader in my own right so that I may give back to others as my leaders gave to me. This is evident in my roles at school, in clubs, and especially as a canoe trip guide at summer camps where I have been able to guide my campers in their personal growth and achievements. I am a Schulich Leader because I am already a leader in these aspects of my life and because I am excited to develop this role in a STEM setting.
