Vanier College and the Vanier College Foundation are very pleased to announce that at a ceremony held on November 30th, close to $12,000 in Entrance Scholarships provided jointly by the Foundation and the Office of the Academic Dean was awarded to the 75 top new students beginning their studies at Vanier College in the fall 2016 semester.
The scholarships are awarded annually to high school students in recognition of outstanding academic entrance qualifications. The three top scholarships went to Lyna Siafa in Health Science who received $500 for achieving the highest overall average coming into Vanier; Chaimae Hammodan also in Health Science who received $400 for achieving the second highest overall average, and Leo Purich from Science and Music who received $300 for the third highest average.
As well, $150 scholarships were awarded to the students having achieved the highest overall average upon entering their program (85% or above) and to students who achieved an overall average of 90% or above, regardless of their program.
“Awarding these entrance scholarships recognizes the high school success and accomplishments of new students coming to Vanier. We wish them the best in their Cegep studies and their next two or three years here at Vanier. Cegep marks a whole new phase in their development and education and it’s a pleasure to celebrate the start of this time with these scholarships,” said John McMahon, Vanier College Director General.
