2016 Young Scholar Seminar

1 May, 2016

Sherry Wong


When I was hustling away with my university and scholarship applications, I remember wondering “How great would it be if I could hear about a past scholarship recipient’s experience, or have the opportunity to chat with all these high achieving scholars”.

This was the thought that motivated me to found Young Scholar, a community resource dedicated to helping students prepare their applications for scholarships and admission to post-secondary institutions and professional schools.

At Young Scholar, we host an annual seminar where attendees could gain the following:

  • Application and interview tips from national scholarship recipients
  • How to write a successful application essay with real examples
  • Prestigious professional school students’ advice on admissions
  • Advice on how to build your profile to stand out from the crowd
  • Networking and Q&A session with our guest speakers

Those who are strongly recommended to attend

  • All elementary, high school, and undergraduate level students and parents
  • Interested applicants for Canada’s largest scholarships 
  • Prospective professional school students (Business, law, medical, and pharmacy)
