Announcing The First Winner of Our Financial Literacy Scholarship
Loans Canada: The Country's Best Loan Comparison Platform
We announced the Loans Canada Financial Literacy Scholarship program earlier this year and since then we have received hundreds of applications from wonderful students all across Canada.
Today, we are happy to announce the first winner of our Financial Literacy Scholarship, Elizabeth Gagne, a first-year Bachelor of Commerce student at McGill University from Regina, SK.
We asked Elizabeth for a short summary about herself and her contribution in helping kids with financial literacy.
I am determined to graduate from university debt-free. As such, I worked hard to keep my academic average always >96% so I could be considered for scholarships and I applied for many! I also worked part-time throughout high school which definitely helped my savings account. One summer, I spent time volunteering at a Financial Literacy summer camp with Junior Achievement. As a peer mentor, we spent time talking to young students about debt, credit rating, savings and investing. I believe the decisions young people make, or fail to make, with their money lays a foundation for their future and I want, firstly, to make good personal decisions and to also continue to help young people make good financial decision.
Needless to say, we are very proud to have selected Elizabeth as the first winner of our scholarship program.
