Empowerment Squared is pleased to announce the launch of the Joan C Stewart Community Leadership Scholarship. This is the organization’s first scholarship – a new form of support for refugee, immigrant and newcomer youth who participate in Empowerment Squared’s academic mentoring program to succeed in post-secondary education and ultimately empower themselves and develop their capacity to serve our community. The organization hopes to increase the number of scholarships available to its young leaders and welcomes inquiries about support.
Joan C Stewart Community Leadership Scholarship
Established in 2017 by Mark John Stewart, former Chair of Empowerment Squared’s Board of Directors, to recognize the exceptional community contributions of his mother, Joan C Stewart. This award is given to one student annually, who is commencing post-secondary studies at McMaster University or Mohawk College, and, in the judgement of the selection committee, demonstrates outstanding academic achievement and community leadership. The student must be an active participant with Empowerment Squared programs.
