Stuart Semple Scholarship for Atlantic Canada

Kevin Arseneau has always been interested in geography, whether it was poring over the maps and atlases his parents bought him as a child or taking an adventure tourism course later in life. This year, his passion and hard work paid off when he was awarded the Stuart Semple Scholarship for Atlantic Canada.

The $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to a deserving student with a major or minor in geography and the intention to pursue a Bachelor of Education program in Atlantic Canada. The Université de Moncton student has thrown himself into his studies, taking 10 courses last semester alone just to get through school so that he can start teaching.

While the scholarship will help him financially, Arseneau believes there’s something special about the Stuart Semple Scholarship. “I like that The Royal Canadian Geographical Society doesn’t think of geography only in its purest form,” he says. “It truly appreciates that geography is the perfect gateway to citizenship and that funding geographic education is a way to reach all levels of society.”
