Schol­ar­ships val­ued at over $200,000 have been awarded to over 200 high school students from across New­found­land and Labrador, in­clud­ing 14 from the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion re­gion.

Rang­ing from $1,000 to $2,500, the schol­ar­ships are in­tended to help students pur­sue ed­u­ca­tion at a post-sec­ondary in­sti­tu­tion, and a re­cip­i­ent’s el­i­gi­bil­ity is based on pub­lic ex­am­i­na­tion re­sults.

“These schol­ar­ships ac­knowl­edge the achieve­ment of students from com­mu­ni­ties across New­found­land and Labrador — ur­ban and ru­ral — and from schools both large and small,” said Ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Clyde Jack­man.

The award with the high­est mone­tary value is the Ju­nior Ju­bilee Schol­ar­ship, val­ued at $2,500. It is awarded to the stu­dent who at­tains the high­est over­all marks in the prov­ince. This year, Gon­zaga high in St. John’s grad­u­ate Hayam Hamo­dat was awarded the schol­ar­ship.

The Con­sta­ble W.C. Moss Schol­ar­ship is awarded to the son or daugh­ter of a mem­ber of the Royal New­found­land Con­stab­u­lary or the Royal Cana­dian Mounted Po­lice (ac­tive, re­tired or de­ceased) who, other than the Ju­nior Ju­bilee win­ner, achieved the high­est pub­lic ex­am­i­na­tion marks. This year’s re­cip­i­ent of $1,000 is Russ MacLean, a grad­u­ate of St. James Re­gional High School in Port aux Basques.

The prov­ince also awarded $1,000 Elec­toral Dis­trict Schol­ar­ships to the three high school grad­u­ates in each elec­toral dis­trict with the high­est marks.

Centenary of Re­spon­si­ble Gov­ern­ment Schol­ar­ships, val­ued at $1,000, are awarded to 55 students — other than the Ju­nior Ju­bilee, W.C. Moss and the Elec­toral Dis­trict Schol­ar­ships — with the high­est marks.

“I con­grat­u­late each of this year’s schol­ar­ship re­cip­i­ents and wish them con­tin­ued suc­cess as they continue their ed­u­ca­tional jour­ney,” said Jack­man. Lo­cal win­ners in­clude the
