Meet the 2022 Leaders of Tomorrow

Ten high school students seeking admission to UM have been awarded BMO Financial Group Leader of Tomorrow and BMO Financial Group Indigenous Leader of Tomorrow scholarships. The recipients are all multitalented students, greatly involved in their communities, with high academic standards (minimum 90 per cent average in specific grade 11 courses). Each scholarship is valued at $16,000 over four years of study.

“Amidst all the challenges that our students were faced with in their final year of high school during the pandemic, they demonstrated much resilience and drive,” says Jane Lastra, associate registrar and director, Financial Aid & Awards. “Each and every student interviewed is worthy of recognition— the interview panel was unanimously impressed with their academic, personal and community strengths. There is no doubt that these scholars will achieve all of their academic hopes and dreams.”
