The Johnson HORIZONS Program rewards engaged student leaders with leadership learning opportunities. It is made possible through the generosity of Johnson Inc. in partnership with Memorial University.

Applications for the Johnson HORIZONS program are now open. A single student can be nominated by each Grade 9 school in the province. 50 candidates will be selected from these nominations. The HORIZONS winners will receive a total of $1,200 and are welcomed into a leadership development program that will engage them throughout high school and prepare them for success as a student at Memorial University.

The nomination process for next year's scholarship will be announced in early 2018. Candidates must be nominated by their school: nominations from students or parents independent of their school will not be accepted.
