Project Noise Award

 

Overview


As mental health diagnoses continue to rise among post-secondary students, the costs incurred continue to rise as well. Receiving treatment for mental illness can become incredibly costly. While many universities across Canada have their own services with an inhouse team of healthcare professionals, these services are often over-booked or simply inadequate. For these reasons, many students (including those with limited or no insurance policies) must seek external solutions and are forced to spend hundreds to thousands of dollars annually to pay for these medical bills, including monthly charges for prescription refills and psychologist fees which are in no way covered by the Canadian government.

For these reasons, we are offering the Project Noise Award to aid students in the expenses incurred while receiving treatments.

 
 

Eligibility


The Young Scholar Award is open to all high school students in Canada, including grades 9-12 and CEGEP students.

 
 

Deadline


The Young Scholar Award was established to recognize students who demonstrate exemplary leadership qualities and made a significant contribution to their school and community. The scholarship is valued at $1000.

The short answer component of the Young Scholar Award application includes commonly asked leadership questions from prestigious scholarship applications and interviews. The questions were designed systematically and are cohesive with one another, so that they can be combined to form a complete 1000 words essay.
