About The Scholarship
Canadian Schulich Leader Scholarships are undergraduate scholarships for students intending to enroll in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) areas of study at a minimum of one of the 20 selected universities.
All Canadian high schools, secondary schools and Cégeps (in Quebec) may submit one Schulich Leader Nominee each. Schulich Leader Nominees are selected by their individual schools and must possess at least two of three criteria:
- Outstanding community, business or entrepreneurial leadership

Once Schulich Leader Nominees are verified, they can apply their nomination to the participating universities in Canada where they intend to submit formal applications for undergraduate study for Fall 2013. Formal applications for undergraduate study must be submitted by each Schulich Leader Nominee no later than March 1, 2013.
All participating universities are responsible for selecting the Schulich Leaders for their respective institution. In 2013, 40 Canadian Schulich Leaders will be selected – two Schulich Leaders at each participating university.
Each undergraduate scholarship is valued at $60,000 CAD. The scholarship is distributed during each Schulich Leader’s term of undergraduate study and will start with the academic year commencing in Fall 2013.
Schulich Leader Scholarships are part of a $100 million gift in perpetuity on behalf of UJA Federation of Greater Toronto and the Seymour Schulich Foundation.
