Scholarships are awarded to high school students entering college or university who have shown exceptional initiative in making a meaningful and lasting difference in their community. The award includes full tuition at any approved university or college in Canada and $7500 per year toward living expenses to a maximum of $70,000. While applicants must be academically capable of entering and successfully completing either university of college, the focus of these scholarships is not primarily on rewarding the highest marks.
