This coveted scholarship is a testament to her remarkable talents, dedication, and commitment to making a positive impact in her community and beyond.
Reflecting on what this scholarship means to her, Sarah said, "To me, it's much more than a scholarship. First and foremost, it's a community of unique people who come together and support each other to make positive change around them." She also added, "It is important for me to recognize that this award is not only an individual honour, but a collective one. Throughout my journey, I have been supported by many people, and now I intend to take advantage of every experience the Loran Foundation offers me to continue to make positive changes in my community."
As a recipient of this award, Sarah will receive a renewable annual stipend, which includes a living allowance and a matching tuition waiver at one of the Loran Foundation's 25 partner universities, for a period of four years. Additionally, she will have access to summer program funding, one-on-one mentoring, and networking opportunities with other young scholars.
Sarah's plans include starting college for medical school next year. At Collège Universel, she is a natural sciences student and serves as the president of the General Student Association. She has been instrumental in creating a vibrant student community and has contributed innovative ideas to student life.
In addition to her academic achievements, Sarah is active in her community. She has volunteered for the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life and at a hospice with patients approaching the end of life. Her empathy, compassion, and desire to help others reflect her character and dedication.
Collège Universel is the only private college in the Outaouais region and offers a wide range of pre-university and technical college diploma programs and attestations of college studies. The college community is proud of Sarah's accomplishments and is confident that she will continue to excel in her studies and make positive contributions to society.
