Yeva Côté-Paradis and Félix Desroches, a student in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Université Laval, have been selected to receive the prestigious Schulich Leader Scholarship, Canada’s largest Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) scholarship. They will receive a $100,000 or $80,000 scholarship to complete their undergraduate studies.

Out of more than 350,000 potential candidates across Canada, 1,400 students were recommended by their high school or CEGEP as Schulich Leader candidates. This year, 100 of them were chosen as winners of this important scholarship program.

About the winners
Yeva Côté-Paradis receives a $100,000 Schulich Leader grant. The graduate of Cégep Limoilou will start this autumn with the cooperative bachelor’s degree in materials and metallurgy technology. Yeva characterizes her career ideals with these keywords: dynamism, science, innovation, commitment and vector of change. She wants to do a master’s degree later and become a physics engineer.

Félix Desroches receives an $80,000 Schulich Leader grant. The graduate of Cégep Garneau will start his bachelor’s degree in physics this fall. He is aiming to do a doctorate in quantum physics and to work in this future field. Félix also has the ambition to participate in research projects on scientific innovation and as a speaker to share his expertise and passion for technology and science.

Select Laval University
“I chose Laval University because of its international reputation in science and technology and its location in the most beautiful city in Canada, where I have the opportunity to grow up. The dual bachelor’s degree in materials and metallurgy technology is an innovative program that perfectly combines my passions from the fields of medicine and engineering. Thanks to the multitude of activities and projects offered within the program, I know that I will have the chance to realize all the ideas that fascinate me! I want to contribute to the development of medical devices that improve the daily lives of the communities that need them most, here and elsewhere,” the materials and metallurgy engineering student, winner of a $100,000 Schulich Leader grant, told Yeva Côté paradise.
