The new Schulich Leader Scholarship program is being touted as a Canadian Rhodes Scholar award for high school graduates committed to entering STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subject in university.
The $100 million scholarship initiative, donated by business leader and philanthropist Seymour Schulich, was created to help secure the future economic competitiveness of Canada and its leaders are among the next pioneers of global scientific research and innovation.
Each high school in Canada has the opportunity to nominate one student for a four-year Schulich Leader Scholarship valued at $60,000. Twenty Canadian recipients will be chosen in 2012. The deadline for schools to submit for this year is January 13, 2012.
