Woodbridge student Anu Popoola, who attends Holy Trinity School in Richmond Hill, will be participating in our National Selections in Toronto on February 1st and 2nd. She has a chance to earn a Loran Award valued at $100,000 over four years for undergraduate studies in Canada.
Anu is among the top 88 of 5,089 candidates, based on evidence of character, commitment to service in the community and leadership potential. She was nominated by her school and has already gone through a day of regional interviews.
After National Selections, the Loran Scholars Foundation will grant 34 Loran Awards. The Loran Award includes annual stipends, tuition waivers from a partner university, mentorship, summer-internship funding, as well as annual retreats and forums. If not selected as a Loran Scholar, Anu is eligible to receive a $5,000 finalist award.
