Class of 2016 graduate Arma Khan has been awarded the prestigious Schulich Leader Scholarship. Khan will be entering the Engineering program at York University this fall. She was selected by Vince De Luca, Guidance Program Leader for her outstanding academic and extra-curricular achievements, and was one of only 25 students across the country to receive this scholarship, which will provide her $80,000 to pursue her post-secondary education.
Schulich Leader Scholarships are 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, valued at more than $5million. High schools across the country put forth 1,500 Schulich Leader Nominees who were vying for 50 Canadian scholarships. Schulich Leaders can devote their full time and attention to their studies, as all of their financial needs are covered over the course of their degree. Canada’s highest potential students are winning these scholarships and will make remarkable contributions to society.
