Field of Study
Mathematics or any field with a strong math component
Open to Grade 12 students of Joane Cardinal-Schubert who have demonstrated excellence in the field of mathematics.
Excellence in math is not necessarily just high grades – it may also include being passionate about learning and exploring math and/or demonstrating improvement in the mastery and understanding of the subject throughout a student’s time in school.
Students must submit an essay of approximately 500 words or a video (maximum 3 minutes) outlining why they are passionate about learning math and how math will support them in their future education and career. Students could also write about someone (a teacher, parent, mentor) who inspired a love of learning math. Students are to submit their essay along with a letter of reference from their math teacher (signed and on letterhead).
Online application available at www.educationmatters.ca. Applicants should check with their guidance office for more information and are encouraged to discuss their application with the Scholarship Coordinator at their high school.
