We are excited to announce the winners of the inaugural P2C-Students NEXT Steps Scholarship piloted in Ontario this year.
There are 17 students who were selected as winners, all of whom are starting their first year of post-secondary education this fall. We are thankful for the many students who worked diligently on their applications and we wish all of them the best in their transition to university. There is no obligation for the scholarship applicants or winners to connect with P2C-Students; however, we would like to invite any and all students to connect with P2C-Students as they explore the Christian faith in post-secondary education.
This year we are excited to award 17 prizes. 16 of the scholarships are valued at $1000. Additionally, one student has won the grand prize of a $3000 scholarship. Each applicant completed a scholarship application that typically took 30 minutes, and provided two references: a peer reference and a reference from a mentor or pastor. As these applications were evaluated, again we are thankful for each and every applicant and the overall quality of responses.
