Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation Awards 10 University Scholarships

Ten hardworking university students, from across Canada, recently got some help with tuition.

Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation, a non-profit organization specializing in Registered Education Savings Plans (RESP), awarded ten $7,500.00 scholarships, as part of an on-going program to reward academic achievement.

“We take great pride in offering these awards to students,” said Sherry MacDonald, President and CEO of the Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation.

“They deserve recognition for the exceptional time and energy they’ve put into their studies and to helping those around them. We know they will go on to make a valuable contribution to the communities in which they work and live.”

The award announcement comes on the heels of Statistics Canada announcing that graduate studies tuition costs have outpaced inflation, by rising 3.7 per cent in 2011, one per cent higher than the inflation rate.

“As the competitive nature of today’s educationally driven society grows, a graduate degree is more important than ever,” said Kathryn Manning, who will study medical physics at the University of Western Ontario.”

“These studies not only offer graduates academic and research opportunities globally, they open the door for innovative research that can often lead to important medical and scientific findings.”

The Canadian Scholarship Trust Foundation Graduate Awards are given annually to students who demonstrate academic excellence, involvement in student organizations, extra-curricular activities, volunteer work and civic engagement.
