Schulich Leaders

A Schulich Leader is one of 50 students who are selected each year by our 20 partner universities to receive $100,000 or $80,000 to pursue an undergraduate degree in STEM. In addition to this large financial award, they join an elite network and receive many ongoing benefits.

Since 2012, 320 Schulich Leaders have been awarded this prestigious STEM scholarship across Canada.
