Be a peace innovator.
The Peace Innovators Scholarship & Mentoring Program equips young leaders like you with skills to tackle a problem you’re passionate about in your community. You will network with other leaders in high schools across Ontario, and by the end of one year, you will launch an event or campaign to address your cause.
Eligibility and application details
Students going into their final year of high school in Ontario are invited to participate. Applications will be accepted online from March to May every year.
Individuals or teams of up to three people are eligible to apply. $250 in seed funding will be given to every team member participating in the program.
