Announcing the Winner of the 2017 MLD Scholastic Scholarship

Posted on July 28, 2017 in:

It is with great pleasure that we announce that this year’s MLD scholarship for $3000 has been awarded to Manbir Grewal, a freshman at the University of Western Ontario. There were over 457 applicants across the US and Canada that applied for the MLD scholarship, with the final 20 who were shortlisted having exceptional grades, extracurricular commitments, leadership experiences and motivating stories of overcoming hardships and adversities.

Mr. Grewal, recipient of the award stated “there is no combination of words that fully embody the respect I have for this scholarship, and how sincerely it provides students, such as myself, with the opportunity to make a change in this world.”

Brought up by emigrates from India, Grewal’s parents always tried to provide the best they could, but lack of money served as an challenging obstacle for post secondary education tuition. As a result, Manbir worked two jobs during high school and managed to maintain A average. He co-founded a school club called Model United Nations (MUN). MUN is an international program in which students simulate UN committees and role-play as delegates to problem solve global issues, as well he served as exec for Zonta, an international club aimed at empowering women through service and advocacy. This summer Manbir was accepted into the University of Western Ontario and will be completing a dual major in Psychology and Business.

Chad Larson of MLD Wealth Management, and co-founder of the scholarship, notes that this scholarship was created because “we believe that by supporting the development of students who possess vision, drive, compassion and a thirst for knowledge, we can improve society and drive industry. Selecting Manbir as the winner out of the pool applicants was incredibly difficult because there were so many highly qualified and exemplary students, but he showed that despite adversities, he could set clear goals, accomplish them, and lift up others while in the process.”

The MLD Annual Scholastic Scholarship is about celebrating and supporting such students with these attributes. We commend all the amazing applicants that applied and wish all of them the best of success in their academic endeavors and life pursuits.
