New Scholarship Offers Full Tuition at Branksome Hall

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 27, 2012) - A new scholarship has the potential to open doors for a young woman with great potential. The new Harold A. Kopas Family Scholarship is available to benefit a new Branksome Hall student who is entering Grade 9 next year.

The recipient of the scholarship will be…

  • Committed to her academic success
  • Interested in participating in learning, both in and out of the classroom
  • Willing to rise to challenges in athletics, the arts and community service
  • Able to reflect the values of the school
  • Determined to reach her potential

The scholarship will provide full tuition for a day student to attend Branksome Hall for four years, starting in September 2013.

"Our family decided to establish this scholarship because we wanted to give a promising student the opportunity to benefit from a Branksome education," says alumna Brigitte KOPAS'88, whose daughter Jayden also attended the renowned independent girls' school. "Branksome has an incredible number of offerings and experiences for students, both inside and outside of the classroom, which make a profound impact on many young women's education and individual growth. Branksome students leave rich with learnings and opportunities they could not get elsewhere under one roof."

Applicants (and their families) must complete the following to qualify:
