Medavie Scholarship - Deadline June 27th
The Medavie Scholarship honours Pierre-Yves Julien, the former CEO of Medavie. As a not-for-profit health services organization, Pierre-Yves recognized that we don’t have an obligation to shareholders, but to the communities where our employees and clients live and work.
From this vision, he helped found the Medavie Health Foundation, which is focused on addressing some of our country’s most pressing physical and mental health care challenges. It was his shared belief that improving the lives of those impacted by chronic conditions doesn’t start at the doctor’s office, but in our homes and community centres, and on our playgrounds. Pierre-Yves retired in 2016, but his legacy lives on through this scholarship.
“We could measure statistics of the hundreds of people who will be affected by the Foundation, but what really matters are the faces, names and stories of the individuals.” -Pierre-Yves Julien, former CEO, Medavie
A scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded annually to a youth who has overcome adversity related to mental health and is pursuing health-related post-secondary studies. The successful recipient will be notified in September.

Campbell-Smith Queer Business Scholarship - Deadline June 30th
This scholarship is for any queer* young person studying business at no higher than the college level. With this scholarship we want to encourage queer young people to go into business.
*Queer in this sense refers to anything other than cisgender and heterosexual.
As business continues to dominate systems of power, we must look to who the leaders are making key decisions affecting the world around them.
A well documented issue in business is the dominance of cisgender, traditionally educated, white heterosexual men in positions of power. We propose challenging this reality by lifting up any way possible marginalized peoples who can speak truth to power and shake up this current dynamic.
Preference for this scholarship will be given to students pursuing studies in sales, marketing or entrepreneurship at the college level, but will be awarded based on the applicants each cycle.
In order to apply for this scholarship you must have an account with ScholarTree

Torchbearer Scholarship for Type Ones - Deadline July 31st
I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes during my university career - my mental state, my physical health, and my GPA all suffered because of it. I know university can be challenging, and Type 1 Diabetes can be a constant hurdle, but my hope is that this scholarship provides some solace to a student who is most deserving. Adversity is meant to be conquered.
The scholarship is strongly considering well-rounded leaders, who make a difference in their community and/or school, hold their academics to a high level, and have shown immense growth since their diagnosis.
In your application, please provide the following requirements:
- Personal Statement up to 500 words, as to what this scholarship would mean to you
- Academic Record in the form of a transcript or a Grade 12 report card
- 2 Reference Letters in any, or one, of the following regards: professional, personal, or scholastic
- Doctor's Note from your endocrinologist/family doctor stating that you in fact suffer from Type 1 Diabetes
Applicants must submit all four requirements to be considered.
Applications are open until July 31. The winner will be notified by August 31. Unfortunately, do to the high number of applicants, only the one successfully awarded student will be notified. The $1,000 CAD scholarship will be reimbursed directly to the successful individual's chosen university to offset tuition costs.
Best of luck to the applicants. Certainly, you will all accomplish wonderful things, even after a cure is found.
