2023 Winners

At Lumine, we believe that today's students are the architects of tomorrow's future. Through the Lumine Group Future Leaders in Technology and Business Scholarship, our mission is to shine a light on the potential of aspiring scholars in Finance and Business. We are dedicated to empowering these students to reach their academic and career aspirations, contributing to a brighter and more promising future.

In pursuit of fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion to support the representation of diverse talent within the Finance and Business sectors, this scholarship aims to provide support to Canadian students with demonstrated financial need, who belong to underrepresented groups. As part of our commitment to their success, recipients of this scholarship can also benefit from a value-added service. This includes a career coaching session or resume review with Lumine’s Head of Human Resources and Director of Talent Acquisition, designed to provide them with additional support on their journey towards achieving their goals.

We are proud to announce the 2023 scholarship recipients.
