Liam Israels and Katie Brown, two of the nation’s highest achieving secondary students, will begin their undergraduate studies at Western this fall as recipients of Schulich Leaders Scholarships.
Launched in 2012, the $100-million scholarship program funded by Canadian philanthropist Seymour Schulich provides 50 undergraduate scholarships across top Canadian universities each year. The program aims to allow the country’s most promising students to pursue their dreams and become global leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Two scholarship recipients are selected at each of the 20 participating universities, with five universities receiving an additional two scholarships for attracting the most applications. Students heading into engineering receive $100,000 while those planning to study other disciplines within science receive $80,000.
