Angelito Elipse, a student at Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School, is one of 84 national finalists for the prestigious Loran Scholarship. It's top winners receive $100,000 towards their university program and its requirements.
Every year applicants from across the country make their submissions, and after two rounds of varying selection processes, Angelito has qualified as one of the 84 national finalists. He will find out in February if he has been selected as one of the top finalists.
As a national finalist, he is eligible to receive $3000 and, with any luck and lots of prayers, he will be amongst the top 31 earning himself $100,000 towards his university program at one of 25 partner universities.
Angelito is a student with such great work ethic (his application average is 97% and he has over 1000 community hours, plays on multiple school teams and holds a part-time job). He truly epitomizes what it means to be a Jean Vanier student leader, and as his mentor it is nice to see it all pay off for such a deserving candidate.
Approximately 4,400 students applied this year.
