Here’s what 2013 J.F. Allen Scholarship Award recipient, Lucas Palmer, has said about the scholarship application and interview process:
The application process for the Teachers Life J.F. Allen Scholarship was convenient and very well organized. Communicating with the selection committee by email was flawless and informative.
When I traveled from Windsor to Toronto for the interview, I had precise instructions on where to go and who to ask for. This resulted in an enjoyable, stress-free trip. Furthermore, everyone at the Teachers Life office was very sociable and nice. I rather enjoyed talking with the selection committee in the interview.
The J.F. Allen Scholarship means a lot to me because it allows me to focus more time on academics and athletics. Having this financial support has given me more freedom in many other aspects of university life as well, including co-op opportunities and extracurricular/volunteer involvement.
