Horatio Alger Canadian Scholarship Program

The Horatio Alger Association of Canada offers 80 awards of $5000 to assist students who have exhibited integrity, strength of character, and perseverance in overcoming personal adversity and who have contributed to their community. Five National Entrepreneurship Scholarships of $10,000 will be also awarded. Both types of scholarships target students with significant financial need; generally, a student will qualify only if family net annual income falls below $65,000.

The submission deadline is 5 p.m. Tuesday, October 25; transcripts, a letter of reference, and income verification (copies of your parents’ tax returns) are required. More information about the application is available at www.horatioalger.ca/en/scholarships.

The University Counselling Office must complete a certification form for each applicant. We can only do so once an applicant has completed the Academic Information section. Applicants will also be asked to provide the email address of their referee; a login will then be mailed to that person so that she or he may fill out the necessary form online. Please do not leave this part of the application to the last minute!
