PW Sims Business program student Jérémie Bedard named Loran Scholar

It is with great pride that we announce that Jérémie Bedard, prospective graduate from PW SIMS Business Program, has been named to the 28th class of Loran Scholars. He is one of 33 young Canadians who were selected from an initial pool of 4,438 applicants based on evidence of character, commitment to serving their communities and long-term leadership potential.

Each student was interviewed or assessed by up to 12 different people over the course of three months. With a total maximum value of $100,000, each Loran Award includes an annual stipend of $9,000 and matching tuition waiver, access to funding for summer internships, one-on-one mentorship and annual retreats and scholar gatherings. It is tenable at any of our 25 partner universities.

Jérémie started a business that helps other student clubs manage their budgets. He leads the entrepreneurship club and serves as treasurer of the CEGEP student association. Jérémie relaunched a used book exchange and co-founded a competition to fund student initiatives. He volunteers with seniors, plays guitar and runs.
