1,147 nominees from across Canada
Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarships are undergraduate scholarships for students intending to enroll in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) areas of study at a minimum of one of the 20 selected universities.
All Canadian high schools and secondary schools (not including Québec) may submit one Schulich Leader Nominee each. Cégeps (in Québec) may select two nominees each. Schulich Leader Nominees are selected by their individual schools and must possess at least two of three criteria:
1. Outstanding community, business or entrepreneurial leadership
2. Academic excellence
3. Financial need
All participating universities are responsible for selecting the Schulich Leaders for their respective institution. New in 2014, forty (40) Canadian Schulich Leaders can be selected – two (2) Schulich Leaders at each participating university. One (1) undergraduate scholarship is valued at $60,000 CAD and is designated for a Schulich Leader pursuing a degree in a science, technology or mathematics program (non engineer-based). The second undergraduate scholarship is valued at $80,000 CAD and is designated for a Schulich Leader pursuing a degree in an engineering program.
