Seycove Secondary student Scott Bernard is one of two students graduating from North Shore high schools this month who will be heading to university in the fall with some financial peace of mind. Bernard has been named a 2016 Schulich Leader and will receive an $80,000 scholarship as a result. This fall he will be pursuing a degree in biomedical engineering at Simon Fraser University.

“I am very honoured and grateful to be a recipient of this year’s Schulich Leaders scholarship.  I am excited to begin pursuing a degree in the field of Biomedical Engineering at SFU.  I want to thank the combined efforts of the Seycove teachers and counsellors as well as the North Shore community members that have made this opportunity possible for me.  It has truly been a life-changing event,” he stated.

Every year, the Schulich Foundation funds 50 undergraduate scholarships in Canada for high school grads enrolling in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics undergraduate program at a participating university. Mulgrave School International Baccalaureate student Hannah Rahim has also been named a 2016 Schulich Leader and will receive $60,000 toward her post-secondary studies. Rahim and Bernard were selected from more than 1,500 nominees across the country based on academic performance and leadership.
