The Mahdi and Rashida Ansar Scholarship for High School students has been provided by the Ansar family. Both Mahdi and Rashida were affected by forced relocation from their home countries and placed a great degree of emphasis on the pursuit of higher education in Canada. The pair were passionate in helping new immigrants to Canada via tutorials and both maintain a passion for volunteerism, particularly in the field of education. We pray that a deserving scholarship recipient uses their education for the benefit of mankind and promotes an unrelenting thirst for knowledge.


MAX scholarships aim to recognize and reward remarkable, well-rounded students who have excelled in academics and combined this achievement with outstanding contributions to their school and community.
