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
