Young Scholar

Scholarships are not just about the money. Winning major scholarship awards can earn you the recognition to distinguish you from the crowd; making admission to renowned universities and professional schools easier. However, it will take considerable time and effort to search, prepare, and apply for available scholarships.

Established by Sherry Wong as a community resource, Young Scholar helps students prepare their applications for scholarships and admissions to post-secondary institutions. Through Young Scholar, students will find useful information on application essay writing techniques, interviewing skills, study tips, as well as valuable advices and insight from past scholarship recipients, professional schools students, and scholarship committee members.
