2008 Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program
Do you know an emerging environmental leader?
All across Canada, from St. John’s to Tofino, high school students are stepping forward to help the environment. Through their committed involvement in volunteer and extracurricular activities they are having a positive impact on both their local communities and our country as a whole. Toyota Canada Inc. and Earth Day Canada take pride in acknowledging the valuable work of these students and rewarding their efforts as they move on to post-secondary studies.
The Toyota Earth Day Scholarship Program is once again offering 15 scholarships of $5000 each to high school students who are entering their first year of college or university. One exceptional student, chosen from the 15 regional scholarship winners, will also be presented with the Toyota Earth Day Scholarship National Award and a Panasonic notebook computer at the National Award Ceremony.
To date, $350,000 has helped 70 exceptional young Canadians to achieve their academic goals.
We know that environmental science students are not the only people who want to make a difference for the environment. That’s why we encourage applications from environmentally active students from all walks of life, regardless of their preferred program of study. Past scholarship recipients have entered various academic fields, including engineering, fine arts, medicine, and political science.
Young people all over the country are busy making a huge difference now, but they are also emerging as the environmental leaders of tomorrow. If you know a student from your local community whose passion for the environment is expressed through dedication and hard work in extracurricular activities and volunteer initiatives, they may qualify for a Toyota Earth Day Scholarship.
The deadline for applications is January 31, 2008.
