Attention high school students! A friend of mine in ECE 2018, Blake, created this great website called The Youth Link that I thought I would share with you all to help you find more opportunities and scholarships. Everything posted on the website will help you prepare for university.
If you’re going into Engineering or Computer Science, I highly recommend the Waterloo Mathematics and Computing Contests as well as the FIRST Robotics Competition if they’re available to you where you are. They’re great to put on your AIF! I would also suggest looking under the Exchanges & Trips section of the website as well because if I could go back to high school and do a few more things, I probably would have applied to more exchange programs. They’re great experiences
that you may not have as much time for once you’re in university so do it while you can! *Correction: there are over 60 exchange programs in 25 countries available in your 3rd year!
Be sure to spread the word and get your friends to take a look at the website too. There will be more opportunities and scholarships posted soon.
Way to go, Blake! :)
