Brock awards scholarships to 56 Niagara high school students

Dozens of students from high schools across Niagara have been given a financial boost as they start their post-secondary studies.

For the third year in a row, Brock University has awarded the Niagara Principal’s Scholarships to two students from nearly every public, Catholic and private secondary school in the region.

Each of the 56 students were awarded $2,500 toward the cost of their first-year tuition at Brock, for a total of $140,000. To date, the Niagara Principal’s Scholarship program has awarded more than $422,000 to 169 students across the region.

“This scholarship was initiated in 2015 as a critical partnership to recognize student excellence within Niagara, and actively engage in the development of our region’s future leaders,” said Beth Natale, Director, Recruitment and Retention. “Offering this substantial financial award is a concrete example of Brock University doing its part to ensure Niagara’s student leaders remain committed to this region, considering Brock and the Niagara region as the top choice for their future.”

The recipients for the scholarships are selected by the principals from each school based on a combination of academic achievements and the students’ involvement in school and in the community.
