Founder’s Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

The Megamind Founder's Scholarship Program was established in 2020 by Megamind Learning Centre. Megamind Learning Centre prides itself in providing an exceptional tutoring program for students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12, Abacus Mental Math, and an accredited private high school program. During the events of the COVID-19 pandemic, Megamind Learning Centre wanted to give back to the community and extend a helping hand. This stimulated the creation of the Megamind Founder's Scholarship Program which will award a one-time scholarship of $1000 to the student who writes the best short story or informational text for children.

Anyone can apply. You do not need to be enrolled with Megamind Learning Centre to participate. The Megamind Founder's Scholarship Program will be administered and judged by the founder of Megamind Learning Centre as well as a handpicked panel of judges.
