Undergrad over the top

Clayton Heights grad Qadeem Salehmohamed awarded a $50,000 scholarship by the University of Alberta.

Qadeem Salehmohamed, a graduate of Clayton Heights Secondary School, has been awarded the University of Alberta’s top undergraduate scholarship, worth $50,000 over four years.

Salehmohamed’s President’s Centenary Entrance Citation will be used to study at the U of A’s Faculty of Science.

The President’s Centenary Entrance Citation is offered to one outstanding student entering an undergraduate degree program at the U of A from high school on the basis of superior academic achievement.

Senior administrators at high schools and post-secondary institutions across Canada nominate students with distinguished academic and personal achievements for this award.

As part of the application process, students must also write a personal essay and provide an academic reference.

The Scholastic Distinction Program has offered 76 awards with a total value of $950,000 to outstanding prospective U of A students this year.

The program complements a broad scholarship package valued at more than $25 million annually.

Salehmohamed and other top students, professors and staff were honoured recently at the annual University of Alberta Celebrate! Teaching -Learning-Research event held at the Myer Horowitz Theatre on campus.
