#FacesofTrentU: Trent’s Scholarships in Action

February 11, 2019

Juan Urzua, Biology Major

“I chose Trent because it offers the best scholarships for international students. As a transfer student from a university in the U.S., I was in a narrow niche to qualify for a scholarship in Canada. That is when I discovered Trent’s Global Citizen Scholarship which allowed me to return to school.”

Juan Urzua, international student from Mexico. Biology major, and recipient of a Trent Global Citizen Scholarship.

With plans to pursue a career in Biology, Mr. Urzua feels prepared with the laboratory experiences, science writing and public speaking skills that his Trent education has provided him. Beyond the classroom, one of Mr. Urzua’s favourite things about Trent is how personal his interactions with students, faculty, and staff are.

After graduation, Mr. Urzua will be working towards his permanent residency and plans to explore Western Canada with a move to British Columbia.
