National Entrepreneurial and Canada Scholarships


All Scholars will be required to participate in a University Success Program throughout their grade 12 year of high school. The main goal of the University Success Program is to support Scholars throughout the university admissions process and prepare them to thrive during their first year of university and beyond.

Our Scholar Services Coordinators will facilitate the University Success Program, and we will focus on the following topics throughout the program:

* University Admissions and Applications
* Student Financial Aid
* Academics in University
* Scholarship Search and Time Management
* Personal Financial Literacy
* Career Exploration
* Personal Wellness
* University Services & Getting Involved on Campus


The University Success Program will begin with orientation in September. Our team will offer multiple orientation sessions. All awarded Scholars will need to register for and attend one of these orientation sessions.

After orientation, Scholars are expected to commit 4 hours per month to this program. This program traditionally runs from September to the following June and will consist of:

* 6 virtual sessions facilitated by a Scholar Services Coordinator
* University-prep activities submitted to the Association


If you are awarded and accept the Horatio Alger Scholarship, you will agree to complete the University Success Program (USP). Scholars will be required to attend virtual sessions that run from September to the following June. All sessions are mandatory. In order to receive your funding, you must complete the University Success Program in its entirety.
