Application period opens for MYAC Leadership Scholarship

Monday, May 30, 2022

The Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council (MYAC) is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the MYAC Leadership Scholarship.
Students entering post-secondary education that reside in Sault Ste. Marie are eligible to submit an application. The application period is open until June 30, 2022 and recipients will be announced on July 11, 2022.
“I continue to be impressed by MYAC’s efforts to make a difference in our community and to provide a voice for local youth,” said Mayor Christian Provenzano. “The positive effects of a post-secondary education are numerous and significant – not only for the individuals accessing the educational experiences but for the community as a whole – and I want to encourage eligible youth to consider submitting an application.”
In an effort to facilitate opportunities for local youth and create equitable opportunities for marginalized people, MYAC will be providing two scholarships valued at $1,000 respectively. One of the scholarships will be designated for applicants who identify as a marginalized person and the other scholarship will be available for applicants who do not identify as a marginalized person or do not wish to be considered as part of the marginalized person application pool.
The scholarships will be awarded to applicants who demonstrate MYAC’s core values and strong leadership qualities.
“MYAC recognizes the significant cost associated with attaining a post-secondary education along with the future opportunities for gradates, and we wanted to offer the chance for local youth to access support,” said Aseel Hashim, Chair of MYAC.
“As a University student, I see it for myself firsthand. I know how hard it can be to pay for post-secondary education, and I’m proud to be a part of a committee that is trying to make it a little bit easier for people to attend a post-secondary institution. I really hope local youth will take advantage and submit an application.”
