The Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship Programme

The Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship Programme

The Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship Programme awards up to ten one-time $10,000 scholarships to incoming students who demonstrate exceptional leadership skills, both inside and outside of the classroom. The scholarship award is applied against tuition fees, and all scholarship recipients will also be eligible to apply for Appleby’s $4.0 million dollar 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 2018-19 Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship Programme must meet the following requirements:

  • Have achieved high academic standing having participated in a rigorous academic programme in their previous two years of schooling. In most cases students should have an overall average in excess of 85% or letter grade of A- or higher.
  • Have been an active participant in athletic, arts  and/or community involvement either within their school community or externally.
  • Have demonstrated leadership within their current school community and their non-school endeavours.
  • Have a proven commitment to giving back to others through service within their local community, and is able to submit a minimum of one non-academic letter of reference.
  • Have submitted a written reflective piece on “How they can make a difference in the lives of others".

Recipients will be eligible to apply for other merit scholarships. However, if they are awarded a scholarship of lesser, equal or greater monetary value they will need to forgo the monetary award of either the Sir Edmund Walker Scholarship or the other scholarship.
