Duchess Park Secondary Student Awarded $60K Scholarship
Prince George, B.C. – A Prince George high school student has been awarded the prestigious Schulich Leader Scholarship.
Mana Moshkforoush, a graduate of Duchess Park Secondary School, has earned $60,000 to study science at McGill University this fall where she will be entering the Biological Biomedical Life Sciences Program.
Moshkforoush was nominated by her counsellor Kirk Elliot.
“As Mana’s counsellor for the past two years I have come to know her as a scholar, a leader, and committed volunteer in the community,” he says.
“She is the top academic student at Duchess Park this year with a 97.2% average. I am sure she will continue to excel at McGill this September.”
Schulich Leader Scholarships are entrance scholarships awarded to high school graduates enrolling in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics undergraduate program at participating universities in Canada and Israel.
The scholarships were established by businessman and philanthropist Seymour Schulich in 2012.
The program awards 100 scholarships annually, valued at more than $5 million.
