Anthony Hope

Surrey student in the running for $100,000 scholarship

Johnston Heights Secondary's Anthony Hope is among 75 Loran Scholar finalists.

A Surrey high school student has a shot at a national scholarship valued at up to $100,000.

Anthony Hope, in Grade 12 at Johnston Heights Secondary, is among 75 Loran Scholar finalists selected from 3,800 applicants across the country.

Loran scholarships come with an award of up to $100,000 over four years to apply to undergraduate studies in Canada.

There have been four Loran Scholars from Surrey and one from Delta in the scholarship’s 25-year history. Last year, Surrey’s Shakti Ramkumar was among those selected.

Hope helped draft an anti-homophobia policy for Surrey schools and co-founded a weekly breakfast program. He will head to Toronto in early February for interviews and even if not selected as one of the 30 recipients, is guaranteed $3,000.

The Loran Scholars Foundation is a national charity that partners with 25 universities to invest in “exceptional” young Canadians.
