Now Open: TRREB $5K & $2.5K Scholarship Application
Kothai Gunaratnam is one of 46 deserving students who has been awarded a scholarship through TRREB's Past President's Scholarship program since it first launched in 2007. Holden Kunde, Anika Shenoy and Eric Xu also received scholarships in 2020 to further their education.
Each year, TRREB grants $15,000 to four graduating high school students pursuing post-secondary education, including two $5,000 first-place and two $2,500 second-place scholarships.
Kothai is attending McMaster University for Integrated Science with a plan to pursue a career in medicine, research or health policy. After a rewarding co-op experience at the St. Michael's eye clinic, Holden is studying Medical Science at the University of Western.
Anika is using the money to help pay for her tuition at the University of Toronto and is studying Engineering Science. As an engineer, she is eager to develop unique solutions to help improve our communities. And Eric is studying Economics at the University of Western and hopes to work in consulting, tech or the public sector to help to better peoples' lives.
Since the program's inception, $185,000 in scholarship money has been awarded to students.
To qualify, students must demonstrate academic achievement, leadership skills and community involvement, plus, write a 1,500-word (minimum) essay on one of two timely topics. This year's topics focus on the dream of home ownership and impact of a growing population on housing in the GTA.
The deadline to apply is 3:00 p.m. on Friday, March 26, 2021 (see Application button).
The scholarships will be presented to the four winners in the spring.
