HWDSB Students Win Schulich Leader Scholarships
HWDSB graduates from Saltfleet and Sir Allan MacNab secondary schools have each won $80,000 Schulich Leader Scholarships to support their university dreams.
Shannon Buck (Sir Allan MacNab) and Ryan Harlen (Saltfleet) were named winners of the prestigious entrance scholarships awarded to high school graduates enrolling in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) undergraduate program at participating universities in Canada and Israel.
Recognizing the increasing importance and impact that STEM disciplines will have on the prosperity of future generations, businessman and philanthropist Seymour Schulich established this $100 million scholarship fund in 2012 to encourage our best and brightest students to become the next pioneers of global scientific research and innovation. This program awards 100 scholarships annually (50 in Canada and 50 in Israel), valued at more than $7 million.
Congrats to these outstanding HWDSB students.
