The Makers High School Scholarship is built to provide the opportunity for as many creative students as possible to dream big, and believe in their ability to actualize those dreams through the support of Makers. We aim to create a partnership between two capable students and Makers Mentors to give students the basic skills to launch their creative career.
We are intent on encouraging a more diverse and equitable media landscape in Canada. In our first year, we partnered with Lester B Pearson Collegiate Institute in Scarborough, ON, awarding two graduating students with a scholarship valued at $5000 per student.
In 2022, graduating students will submit ideas for real projects they want to bring to life! We will again be awarding two students with the tools, support and guidance they need to help bring their vision to reality over the summer of 2022.
The goal is to pave a path for young, divergent perspectives in our industry by providing tools in which youth can discover the possibilities of a job in media. We hope to expand the initiative to other schools across Northern America with the help of future partners.
