What are Presidential Scholars Awards?
Presidential Scholars Awards are one-time awards of approximately $5,000, or renewable awards of up to $80,000 which are paid over four years. The Awards are offered to Canadian high school students (including Quebec CEGEP students) who excel academically as well as demonstrate leadership achievements in the arts, community, athletics, or their school.
