Scholarship Opportunity for STEAM!

dsc_4891Are you a leader, an achiever, or an innovator? Do you have limitless drive, ambition, and determination? If so, there’s an opportunity to receive a $25,000 prize towards your post-secondary education!

The STEAM Horizon Awards, a newly funded prize program, invites Canada’s youth to promote positive changes throughout their community using science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). Up to seven students will each be awarded a $25,000 prize for their post-secondary education. Two of the seven prizes will go to Indigenous youth. The prizes will be funded by the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation Foundation, alongside eight Founding Partners.

The STEAM Horizon Awards recipients will have inspiring achievements in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. These achievements could be formally recognized – a science fair win, a published app, a patented invention, etc. or they could be less formally recognized – the founding of a local coding club, developing a course for kids, or creating a local interactive art installation. Regardless of the accomplishment, it must reflect passion and illustrate a positive impact on the community.

Recipients will receive a $25,000 prize towards their post-secondary education. With academic excellence and great communication skills, recipients have the opportunity to make a positive impact and solve real world problems. Recipients will also be flown to Ottawa and recognized for their achievements at the Foundation’s National Science and Innovation Gala.
