The Mon Sheong Golden Jubilee Scholarship was created to commemorate our 50th anniversary. It is presented annually to students who demonstrate well-rounded excellence and desire to make real change—whether in their communities or around the world.

Our Awards Committee, a panel of current and former professors, evaluates and considers applicants based on their academic standing, voluntary community involvement, leadership, character, and aspirations to make a difference. We are proud to support such exemplary students by empowering them to reach their full potential.

Golden Jubilee Awards of Excellence Scholarship

This year, Mon Sheong is selecting 6 recipients for the Golden Jubilee Scholarship. Each recipient will receive $1,000 per year for the duration of their studies, up to a maximum of 4 years (subject to renewal requirements). The award is open to all students who are:

  1. Graduating from a Canadian high school or CEGEP with a minimum average of 80% among their top 6 grade 12 or CEGEP marks;
  2. Enrolled full-time in a degree or diploma program at a recognized publicly funded Canadian university or college beginning Fall 2017; and
  3. Aspiring to have an even greater impact through their education and experience.

To be eligible for the award, at least one of the applicant’s high school or postsecondary institution must be in Ontario. All applicants must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents.

Application deadline: June 30, 2017

Award winners will be invited to attend a special presentation and networking event with current Scholarship recipients in August.
