Congratulations to the recipients of the 2017 National Scouts Canada Scholarships.
Hannah Estabrook from the 36th Halifax Group received the top award, the Young Citizens Foundation Scholarship, valued at $5,000. Hannah will be headed to the University of Victoria this fall to study Geography – Urban Health and Development.
All recipients are incredibly motivated youth who have demonstrated through community involvement and Scouting, that they not only have outstanding leadership qualities, but also have the desire to create a better world. Scouts Canada is pleased to be able to offer these scholarships through the generosity of our supporters. Together, we are investing in the leaders of tomorrow.
Rebecca Cairns from the 1st Porcupine Plain Group was awarded the Peter Richmond Binet Scholarship valued at $4,000. Rebecca will be studying Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan.
The awards are based on a combination of academic success, community involvement and Scouting leadership. All of these awards, with the exception of the Chinook Scholarships and the Opemikon Staff Scholarships, are open to all Scouts entering or continuing in full-time studies at a Canadian university or college.
