With a value of $60 000, the Schulich Leadership Scholarship is awarded to graduating students who have the intention to study in the Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics programs at university.

School-selected Nominees will enter the pool of applicants from which universities will decide to whom the scholarships will go. There are 40 such available awards for 2014.

Applicants should write to the Guidance Office, where the staff will select one Nominee by February 4th, 2014.

Any student wishing to be selected as a Schulich Leader Nominee must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident with financial need who attends a Canadian high school. The student should also possess at least two out of three of the following qualities: academic excellence, and outstanding community, business or entrepreneurial leadership.

After being selected, the Schulich Leader Scholarships Team at United Jewish Appeal Federation of Greater Toronto (UJA) will provide the Nominee with an online Schulich Leaders application form.

The student must include a photograph along with the ideal universities he or she wishes to attend, a list of three of his or her most important achievements, an up-to-date high school transcript, and a 600-word essay explaining why the applicant is the right Schulich Leader. These application forms are due by March 1, 2014 and are reviewed by the UJA.

They will then proceed to submit the applications to the universities the Nominee wishes to attend. Participating universities include Dalhousie University, McGill University, McMaster University, Memorial University, University of Ottawa, Queen’s University, Simon Fraser University, University of Toronto, University of British Columbia, University of Waterloo, Western University and York University, among others.
