For those who have never interrupted their studies
Continuity Prize (MELS)
The Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) awards two cash prizes of $2000 to regional winners enrolled in vocational or technical training who have demonstrated continuity in their studies.
To demonstrate “continuity in their studies,” candidates must have been enrolled, in the previous year, in general education in the youth or adult sector, in a vocational training program, in a pre-university program at the college level or in a technical training program.
To be eligible for this category, candidates must meet the general eligibility requirements and must be 19 years of age or under at the time of enrollment. To ensure that younger women with little work experience are not at a disadvantage, candidates are only required to answer the questions in the candidate’s Application section.
