Minister announces province�s latest scholars

The Minister of Education, Judy Foote, announced the winners of this year�s high school scholarships. The 201 scholarships range in value from $1,000 to $2,500 and are based on achievement on the scholarship examination prepared by the Department of Education.

For the first time, there are two winners of the Junior Jubilee Scholarship. Anand Joshi of Gonzaga High School and Rajiv Thavanathan of Holy Heart of Mary High School, both of St. John�s, tied for first place. The scholarship, valued at $2,500, is awarded to the student who scored highest in the province on the scholarship examination.

The Constable W.C. Moss Scholarship has been awarded to Matthew Carroll who attended Gonzaga High. It is awarded to the son or daughter of a member of the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary or the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (active, retired or deceased) who scored the highest on the scholarship examination. This scholarship is valued at $1,000.

One hundred and forty-four Electoral District Scholarships, valued at $1,000 each, have been awarded to the three high school graduates who scored highest on the scholarship examination in each district.

Fifty-five Centenary of Responsible Government Scholarships, also valued at $1,000, have also been awarded based on achievement in the scholarship examination.

A total of $205,000 is provided to high achieving students throughout Newfoundland and Labrador through the province�s scholarship program.

"These students should be extremely proud of their achievements," said Minister Foote. "Success at this level bodes well for their future academic and career prospects. I offer my sincere congratulations to each of them and wish them all the best as they embark upon their post-secondary education."
