Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarship

Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarships are undergraduate entrance scholarships for students intending to enroll in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) programs at one of 20 partner universities.

All Canadian high schools and secondary schools (outside of Québec) may submit one Schulich Leader Nominee each. Cégeps (in Québec) may select four nominees each. Schulich Leader nominees are selected by their individual schools and must meet the following criteria:

1. Academic excellence, AND
2. Leadership, charisma and creativity
** Strong consideration will be given to students with financial need

Once Schulich Leader Nominees are verified, they can apply their nomination to the participating universities in Canada where they intend to submit formal admission applications for undergraduate study for the upcoming fall. Visit the Schulich Leaders website for deadline details.

All partner universities are responsible for selecting the Schulich Leaders for their respective institution.

Up to a total of 100 scholarships are awarded each year. Half of these are valued at $120,000 CAD and are reserved for nominees pursuing a degree in engineering-based programs. The remaining are valued at $100,000 CAD and are reserved for nominees pursuing degrees in science, technology or mathematics (non-engineering programs). Each partner university will select at least two Schulich Leaders.

Schulich Leader Scholarships are part of a $200 million gift in perpetuity on behalf of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and the Seymour Schulich Foundation.
