Congratulations to the Round One recipients of the NEXT Steps Awards!

P2C-Students is excited to announce the recipients of its 2024 NEXT Steps Awards for students entering their first year of post-secondary education this fall. P2C-Students is pleased to celebrate this awards program in partnership with Youth for Christ/Youth Unlimited.

This year, the P2C-Students NEXT Steps Awards is awarding 101 prizes totalling $50,000, including a grand prize valued at $5000 and one at $2000. Additionally, there are 99 other awards between $200 and $1000. Application for these awards  was accessible in French. The award recipients are selected in two phases. The first on June 12 has 52 awards. The remaining award recipients will be determined the third week of August. As a result, there is still time to apply for awards (deadline: August 7). To apply for awards, go here.

Each applicant completed an awards application and provided two references: a peer reference and a reference from a mentor, leader, or pastor. After evaluating every application, we are thankful for each and every applicant for their diligent work and the overall quality of responses. We want to wish each student the best in their transition to college or university. 

As a reminder, there is no obligation for the award applicants or recipients to connect with P2C-Students; however, we are pleased to invite any and all students to connect with P2C-Students as they explore the Christian faith or seek community during their time in post-secondary education.

P2C-Students looks forward to providing each of the applicants opportunities to thrive as they take their next steps into post-secondary. For other incoming students who would like to connect with P2C-Students locally, where possible, please visit our NEXT page.
