Schulich Leaders make their mark

A pair of Schulich Leaders made immediate impacts in their first year at UNB.

Geoffrey Noseworthy of Lewisporte, NL, and Anna Postill of Toronto, ON, received the prestigious scholarship, which is awarded to high school graduates enrolling in science, technology, engineering or mathematics, in part due to their leadership potential.

Geoffrey, enrolled in a concurrent bachelor of computer science and bachelor of mathematical physics program, became the vice-president and director of alternatives in the Emerging Technologies UNB Club, formed by another Schulich Leader at UNB – Wesley Finck.

Further, he is playing a role in revitalizing the UNB Debate Club and is a member of the Physics Society and the E-Sports club.

Additionally, he created a podcast centered around university life, known as Unicast: The University Podcast!

“I would honestly say things are going well,” he says. “I have been doing well in my courses, and I am enjoying them.”

Anna, in her first year of the university’s engineering program, describes life at UNB as, “awesome.”

“I am really enjoying classes and getting to know fellow students. The professors are fantastic and very approachable. I have really enjoyed getting to talk to them since the class sizes are small.”

Anna was elected onto the House Committee in her residence as the social representative and joined Engineers Without Borders, a club that discusses issues specific to global engineering.

Despite the hectic schedule, she also works with her online jewelry company - Be The Vibe Jewelry – which she formed with her sister Gemma. Together, they make, market and sell handmade jewelry to raise money for rainwater harvesting systems in East African communities.

Schulich Leader Scholarships, valued at $100,000 for engineering and $80,000 for science or math, are the largest STEM scholarships in Canada.

“With 50 outstanding students selected each year, this group represents the best and brightest Canada has to offer,” says program founder Seymour Schulich, who established a $100 million scholarship fund in 2012 to encourage our best and brightest students to become the next pioneers of global scientific research and innovation.
