University of Waterloo: Waterloo welcomes the latest cohort of Schulich Leaders Scholarship winners from across Canada


As the fall term begins for universities, a special group of first-year students is set to make a big impression on campus.

Winners of the Schulich Leaders Scholarship are among the best and brightest recent high school graduates, with both stellar grades and a dedication to community service that sets them apart.

“Waterloo is proud to welcome this year’s cohort of Schulich Leaders,” said Vivek Goel, president and vice-chancellor of the University of Waterloo. “These gifted scholars are change-makers who have the potential to make a significant impact through innovation that will change the world for the better.

“Schulich Leaders bring a unique drive and ambition that closely aligns with Waterloo’s strategic goals.”

Through The Schulich Foundation, these prestigious entrance scholarships are awarded to 100 high school graduates enrolling in a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) undergraduate program at 20 partner universities in Canada.

Businessman and philanthropist Seymour Schulich established the $100+ million scholarship fund in 2012 in recognition of the increasing importance STEM disciplines will have on future prosperity.

The scholarships are valued at $80,000 and $100,000 and are awarded based on grades, extracurricular involvement and potential for innovative research and entrepreneurship.

Ten new Schulich Leaders will be attending Waterloo:
• Subha Azrin, Scarborough, ON

• Charlotte Alexandra Brown, Perth, ON
• Norman Chen, St. John’s, NL
• Maggie Liu, Maple, ON
