Statistics Canada just reported that tuition fees for degree programs-both graduate and undergraduate-have increased for the 2020/2021 academic year by up to 1.7% from the previous year. Despite most students taking online courses at postsecondary school, they will still be paying higher overall fees on average compared to the last academic year. As a result, Lorne Leibel, the Founder and President of Canada Homes, just extended the deadline for the Lorne Leibel Scholarship Fund.
TORONTO, ONTARIO / ACCESSWIRE / November 12, 2020 / Founder and President of Canada Homes, Lorne Leibel, is pleased to announce that the deadline for the Lorne Leibel Scholarship fund has just been extended from November 15th, 2020 to December 15, 2020, to allow more students the opportunity to apply. The winner will be announced in mid to late December of 2020.
To apply, applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate program at an accredited post-secondary institution in Canada. Applicants must provide a 750-word essay describing their academic and professional goals, as well as an outline of how they plan to spend the scholarship funds and proof of enrolment.
