2014 winners

Stephanie Weake from Burlington, Ontario and Rachel Barry from Summerside, Prince Edward Island each won a $2,500 LinkScholar scholarship in 2014 for demonstrating strong academic achievement, well-roundedness, leadership and tenacity.

Weake is enrolled in the Concurrent Education program at Brock University and hopes to teach French in a classroom one day.

“I want to thank you for this amazing opportunity and promise that your investment in me will help me accomplish all of my dreams,” Weake said. “I am one step closer to doing what I want to do and being what I want to be.”

The second scholarship recipient, Barry, is studying Human Rights and History at St. Thomas University.
