David Strangway Award for Excellence
Named for the University’s first President and Founding Chancellor, the David Strangway Award for Excellence honours the extraordinary career of Dr. Strangway and his vision that created Quest University Canada. The award provides full tuition for four years. The goal of the award is to grant access to Quest’s unique education to outstanding students regardless of their background, country of origin, or ability to pay. The recipients of this award will have achieved very high levels of academic excellence combined with an outstanding record of leadership and service. Students with a high school average above 90% (3.75 US or equivalent) are encouraged to apply.
The application for the David Strangway Award for Excellence has now closed. Applications currently under review, with recipients notified by April 1.

The Quest program is rigorous, and an important criterion for a scholarship is the applicant’s academic record. This is not evaluated by strict numerical limits, however; we are more impressed by a student who has done well in the most challenging courses available rather than one who achieved the highest grades by choosing an easier route to graduation. We are also interested in extracurricular activities—not the number of different clubs a student joined, but the passion with which they pursued non-academic interests and the impact made on compatriots and community. Some ways that students have demonstrated this is through sports, community service, leadership, theatre, clubs, volunteering, and other expressed talents Quest University Canada Presidential Scholarships are awarded to applicants who have demonstrated an eagerness to learn, an ability to lead, a willingness to contribute, and a passion for excellence. Students must submit their scholarship application within their online Admissions Application. Although optional, it is strongly suggested that students submit reference letters and a resume of personal achievements to support their scholarship application. Quest University Canada Presidential Scholarship applications submitted by the March 1 Financial Aid Deadline are given priority.
