Steven Yang of software engineering is one of two prestigious Loran Award recipients who begin their studies at the University of Waterloo this fall. 

From a pool of nearly 5,000 applicants, only 36 first-year students at 25 partner universities receive Loran Awards worth up to $100,000 over four years. The rigorous selection process looks for people who demonstrate exceptional leadership potential and a desire to make the world a better place.

“I chose Waterloo because of its culture of valuing innovation,” says Yang. “I'm looking forward to meeting like-minded people this fall.”
