Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarship
Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarships are undergraduate scholarships for students intending to enroll in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) areas of study at one of the 20 selected universities.
All Canadian high schools and secondary schools (not including Québec) may submit one Schulich Leader Nominee each (Deadline February 1, 2018). Cégeps (in Québec) may select two nominees each. Schulich Leader Nominees are selected by their individual schools and must possess at least two of the three following criteria:
1. Outstanding community, business or entrepreneurial leadership
2. Academic excellence
3. 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 Fall 2018. Schulich Leader Scholarship applications must be submitted by each Schulich Leader Nominee no later than February 22, 2018.
From March 1 through June 15, 2018, applications will be reviewed and university offers made. On June 15, 2018, the 2018 Schulcih leaders will be finalized and announced.
All participating universities are responsible for selecting the Schulich Leaders for their respective institution. In 2017, 50 Canadian Schulich Leaders were selected – two Schulich Leaders at each participating university. A listing of 2017 winners is available on the Schulich Leader website.
A total of 50 scholarships are awarded each year. Half of these undergraduate entrance scholarships (25) are valued at $80,000 CAD and are reserved for Nominees pursuing degrees in science, technology or mathematics (non-engineering programs). The remaining Schulich Leader Scholarships (25) are valued at $100,000 CAD and are reserved for Nominees pursuing a degree in an engineering-based programs.
