SFU, a national leader in innovation and entrepreneurship education, is pleased to partner with the Schulich Foundation to support the changemakers, entrepreneurs and innovation leaders of tomorrow. SFU Innovates, our university-wide innovation strategy, aims to increase our economic and social impact through the mobilization of knowledge and ideas, engaging students and faculty members with communities and industry partners to solve real-world problems.
Recognizing the increasing importance and impact that STEM disciplines will have on the prosperity of future generations, businessman and philanthropist Seymour Schulich established this now $200 million scholarship fund in 2012 to encourage Canada’s best and brightest students to become Schulich Leader Scholars and the next pioneers of global scientific research and innovation.
Through the Schulich Foundation, these prestigious entrance scholarships are awarded to 100 high school graduates enrolling in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) undergraduate program at 20 partner universities in Canada. Every high school in Canada can submit one Schulich Leader Nominee per academic year based on academic excellence in STEM, entrepreneurial leadership and financial need. The nomination deadline for the 2019/2020 program is Jan. 29, 2020.
