Scholarships award nine high school students who show far-reaching abilities

The Leader of Tomorrow and Indigenous Leader of Tomorrow scholarship programs highlight exceptional high school graduates who combine outstanding leadership potential, academic giftedness and continuing community involvement.

This year’s recipients have been chosen, each receiving a financial award valued at $16,000, allocated over four years of study.

Director of Financial Aid & Awards Jane Lastra said the nine recipients of the two scholarships show far-reaching abilities.

“Scholarships such as these, open many doors to the future for our students,” says Lastra. “With the Leader of Tomorrow and Indigenous Leader of Tomorrow Scholarships, the university is demonstrating its faith and support in our younger generations to carry on traditions such as leadership, strength, service, and innovation. The scholarships not only provide students with financial awards, which help to reduce possible barriers to their post-secondary success, but also the opportunity to personally grow as young leaders.”
