Sherry Wong believes it’s not just top marks that will land you scholarships. It’s belief in yourself and the ability to paint your leadership experiences.
Sherry, who graduated from Monsignor Doyle Catholic Secondary School in 2014, qualified for $130,000 in national, provincial and local scholarships. She founded the Young Scholar Foundation to help students reach for the top and have access to scholarships.
“In some cases, it’s not just students who achieve the highest marks who win scholarships,” explained Wong.
“How can you write your essay in a way that reflects your leadership experience?”
The Young Scholar Foundation helps students prepare their applications for scholarships and admissions to post-secondary institutions, providing valuable insights and advice from past scholarship winners. Currently in her third year, Wong has continued to win top awards, receiving a 2015 Canadian Federation of University Women Scholarship and qualifying for both the 2015 and 2016 Starfish Canada Top 25 Environmentalists under 25.
Our students consistently meet and exceed provincial standards, nurturing top scholars who are committed to helping others.
Sherry is just one example of our system in action.
