The Horatio Alger Ontario Scholarship
The Horatio Alger Association of Canada has started a scholarship program for students resident in Ontario. The scholarship, valued at $5000, is intended to assist students who have exhibited integrity, strength of character, and perseverance in overcoming personal adversity and who have contributed to their community. It targets students with significant financial need; generally, a student will qualify only if family net annual income falls below $50,000.
The submission deadline is Saturday, October 25; interested students must act quickly as transcripts and a letter of reference are required. More information about the application is available here.
The University Counselling Office must complete a certifications 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.
