Our Alumni Scholarship was created to recognize former students and the great things they are capable of.


The purpose of this scholarship is to annually provide a $1000 financial award to a WMEMS graduate who is entering their first year of post-secondary. Applicants must demonstrate academic excellence, show a commitment to community involvement, and exhibit leadership qualities.



  • Must have graduated grade 8 at WMEMS and have attended for a minimum of three years

  • Must be entering their first year of post-secondary education

Selection process:

  • Applications are subject to a blind review by a panel of staff

  • Shortlisted applications will be provided to a third-party, non-biased community member, who is not affiliated with WMEMS staff or graduates


  • A brief cover letter explaining career aspirations and why you are deserving of the scholarship

  • A current resume

  • A 500-600 word essay or a three-minute video on how your time at WMEMS prepared you for challenges you have faced in school or life so far, and how you are preparing to meet challenges in the future

  • A current photo of yourself

Submit your application online or send an email to with the subject line 'WMEMS Alumni Scholarship'.


  • Funds will be awarded to the successful applicant upon confirmation of their registration in post-secondary. Students who elect to defer the start of their post-secondary studies are still eligible to apply

  • WMEMS reserves the right to adjust the criteria of the scholarship, decline to award a scholarship if there is no suitable applicant, and/or award more than one scholarship if deemed appropriate
