Effective for the 2023-24 school year, Appleby College will award up to five new incoming students a $20,000 annual scholarship to be used towards their tuition fees. Named after the school’s founding patron, the scholarship recognizes new incoming students who have demonstrated exceptional leadership skills, both inside and outside the classroom. The scholarship is open to all day, boarding and international students, regardless of their financial need. All scholarship recipients will also be eligible to apply for Appleby’s $5.4 million Financial Assistance Programme.
“With the Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship Programme, we are reinforcing our commitment to supporting exceptionally talented and motivated students who are on the path of becoming tomorrow’s leaders,” said Innes van Nostrand, Principal. “As one of Canada’s most eminent businessmen of his time, Sir Edmund Walker’s vision for Appleby College was to produce potential leaders for the nation, who aspired for more than money, and who understood the importance of the world beyond Canada. This vision lives on today.”
Students interested in applying for the 2023-24 Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship Programme must meet the following requirements:
