Inspiring Leadership Academic Entrance Fellowship

Inspiring tomorrow’s leaders lies at the heart of the University of Regina’s Inspiring Leadership Forum. As our event has grown over the years, so too have our plans to increase our support for young leaders.

Last year we launched a new four-year $30,000 scholarship – the Inspiring Leadership Academic Entrance Fellowship.  This undergraduate scholarship recognizes students who, through their commitment to academic success, volunteer activities, and community leadership have demonstrated the potential to lead.

A portion of the event proceeds supports this Fellowship.  Your ticket will help students achieve their academic goals at the University of Regina and realize their dreams.

Do you know a Grade 12 student planning to enter university in Fall 2022?  To learn more about the Inspiring Leadership Academic Entrance Fellowship, please visit University of Regina Student Awards and Financial Assistance.   Log-in to SAMS as a guest and search for Inspiring Leadership Fellowship to view program information and eligibility requirements.


Meet Chantel Hoag, 2021 Fellowship Recipient

Chantel Hoag

Chantel is a Saskatchewan girl, born and raised in Gravelbourg. She chose the University of Regina to be close to home and enjoys the proximity of having everything she needs so conveniently located. She is a first-year student in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies, majoring in Human Kinetics. After completing her Kinesiology degree, she plans on pursuing medicine, to achieve her life-long dream of becoming a physician.

Helping people and giving back is a way of life for Chantel. “A huge part of my life is sport so a lot of my community service focused on giving back to the sport and back to the youth”.

She is also a competitive curler and calls the curling rink her happy place. “In my small town, growing up there really wasn’t a lot of curling initiatives for youth. So in high school a big part of my life was implementing youth curling programs in my community.”

Mentoring is very important to Chantel and she credits her mom as one of one of her inspirations. “My mom is a huge impact on my life. She is a registered nurse at our hospital in Gravelbourg and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been just amazing and awe-inspiring to watch her support others, but also still support my sister and I through our different endeavors.” 

As she went through the application process for university, Chantel did research on different scholarships through the University of Regina Student Awards Management System (SAMS).  “I saw the criteria for the Inspiring Leadership Fellowship, and it aligned really well with some of the values that I work towards, and so I thought that it was a really good fit and that I should apply for it.”  

Chantel has worked every summer since Grade 9 to ensure she would have the funds for school. She considers this award to be an incredible help and asset as she progresses through her degree. “I think without the scholarship, I definitely would have had to look at student loans and different stressors like that. But now I can go through life’s expenses and the different things that come with being a student a lot more comfortably that I would have without it.”

Chantel will join us at the 2022 Inspiring Leadership Forum as the inaugural recipient of the Inspiring Leadership Academic Entrance Fellowship.
