Surex Scholarship Program

We are proud to be holding our third annual Surex Scholarship Award! With the success of the previous years, we are happy to be offering the award for the 2021 academic school year and helping out another student with their finances while they study.

This scholarship is available for Canadian students, currently enrolled in post-secondary studies, and the chosen winner will be awarded a $1,000 grant toward his or her education in Canadian dollars.

2020 Recipient

We understand that schooling is an expensive affair and we acknowledge the fact that it can be burdensome for some students and their families. The sum of costs incurred from tuition fees along with other associated expenses, such as housing, books, and school supplies, can turn into tens of thousands of dollars. To make things a little easier, we are pleased to be offering an annual $1,000 to help with such costs.

This scholarship is closed for 2020 as the winner has been selected. Our second annual winner is Alexander Tchoukanov, and you can read his full essay here
