SJS celebrates Schulich Leader Scholarship

Ethan Chan, Class of ’22, is among three recipients of the coveted Schulich Leader Scholarship and has joined UBC Engineering.

Valued at $100,000, the award aims to help create “the next generation of technology innovators” by identifying and supporting the “top entrepreneurial-minded STEM student[s]” in high school graduating classes across Canada. Out of a pool of 350,000 candidates, 100 are awarded to entrepreneurial-minded high school graduates enrolling in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math program at 20 partner universities across Canada. 

Ethan was selected as a scholarship recipient for his outstanding academic and extracurricular achievements, such as being recognized nationally at the 2021 Canada Wide Science Fair for developing a cerebrospinal fluid detection device and receiving a Gold Medal at the Youth Can Innovate Awards.

“I am truly honoured to be a recipient of the Schulich Leader Scholarship. It has already opened so many doors and opportunities for me. Their network of mentors and supportive peers will be invaluable in my future academic and career pursuits,” said Ethan.

We wish Ethan every success going forward and look forward to following his progress through university and beyond.
