CEGEP Champlain-St. Lawrence student awarded largest Canadian STEM scholarship
Louis-Philippe Robichaud, recently graduated in Natural Sciences at CEGEP Champlain St. Lawrence, is the recipient of the very prestigious Schulich Leader Admission Scholarship, a scholarship valued at $ 80,000.
Louis-Philippe will continue his studies in mathematics and computer science this fall at McGill University. He is the third candidate sponsored by our institution to obtain a Schulich Leader scholarship.
From his first year of study in St. Lawrence, Louis-Philippe Robichaud stood out by winning a grant from the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et technologies (FQRNT), to carry out a research internship at the university during the summer. Earlier this year, he also won a Loran finalist scholarship. His personal discipline and hard work allowed him to stand out academically, while leading several extracurricular projects. His physics teacher, Gwendoline Simon, who supported Louis-Philippe’s candidacy, underlines not only his remarkable academic performance, but also his outstanding communication skills, his great intellectual curiosity and his desire to share his knowledge.
Louis-Philippe shared his surprise with us when he learned that he had been selected as the recipient of a Schulich Admission Scholarship at McGill University. "When I learned that I had received the Schulich scholarship, I was in shock for a whole day ... Even today, it's hard to believe because so far, it's not concrete. I can't wait to go to McGill to meet the other Leaders! Louis-Philippe argues that the scholarship represents a great opportunity for him to meet exceptional people and launch collaborative projects across Canada.
