UM calls on students to apply to transformative scholarship program
Seymour Schulich, a leading Canadian businessman and philanthropist, has deepened his investment to $200 million to keep Canada at the forefront of the knowledge-based economy.
Schulich Leader Scholarships are now doubling from 50 to 100 annual awards, and the University of Manitoba encourages students and high school guidance counselors to apply to this transformative program.
“Manitoba is brimming with exceptional students who want to change the future but some may lack the means to afford the training,” says Jane Lastra, director of Financial Aid and Awards at UM. “To enable them, UM consistently awards upwards of 1,400 scholarships to first-years students alone, but by far the most significant is the Schulich Leadership Scholarship and I cannot stress enough how important it is for students and guidance counselors to apply for it.”
