USask Students Awarded Prestigious Global Scholarships

Two University of Saskatchewan (USask) students are award winners for the McCall MacBain Scholarships, Canada’s largest leadership-based scholarships for master’s and professional studies.

Having been successful in the award selection process, in the weeks ahead Dylan Bauman and Lauren O’Reilly will attend final interviews in Montreal to determine what level of award they will receive. They are among 91 finalists chosen from more than 700 Canadians who applied for the scholarships.

Of those, 159 participated in a first round of regional interviews in November and December. During that process, a third USask student was among the top candidates in the McCall MacBain Scholarships selection process. Sharon Jacob earned a $5,000 McCall MacBain Regional Award, which may be applied to eligible studies at any public university in Canada.

Each finalist was chosen based on their character, community engagement, leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit, academic strength, and intellectual curiosity – qualities the community needs, noted Dr. Airini, provost and vice-president academic at USask.
