Giving Back: Relief Bursaries

Updated: May 21, 2021


2021, another year full of hardships and challenges that have hit us emotionally, physically, and financially. The pandemic has affected us more than ever, especially with new changes to online learning, virtual events, and graduation requirements.


While the uncertain future may seem just like waking up at 8:00 AM every day for online zoom classes, Illuminate is here to help you get through unprecedented times. At Illuminate, we want to continue providing immersive career experiences that financially accommodate as many students as possible in exploring fields like consulting, finance, entrepreneurship, and technology. Therefore, we would like to invite everyone from the Illuminate family/community to join us at our upcoming virtual National High School Business Conference, held on May 29th, 2021, from 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM EST.


We believe that learning should not be exclusive, it should be inclusive. That is why, unlike our past regional conferences, we are more than happy to waive the conference fee by offering financial help for those who may need it. Please email us at "challenge@illuminateuniverse.com" to let us know/apply.


Join us for a day full of interactive workshops, roundtable networking sessions with leaders and peers, and keynotes from insightful speakers featuring the industries of consulting, entrepreneurship, and finance. You will also have the opportunity to compete in the CPA Ontario Challenge, where your team can use your business intuition to win scholarships and exclusive opportunities with CPA Ontario.


You can sign up either individually or join our High School Coordinator Program and find 4 other friends to compete as a full team of 5 to receive:


- volunteer hours

- business leadership certificates

- reference checks!

In addition, the grand prize for winning both case competitions is $1000 in cash prizes/scholarships.


You can learn more about the event and register here: https://www.illuminateuniverse.com/nhbc. The NHBC registration page will close for all students on May 26th, 11:59 pm est. Unfortunately, we only have a limited amount of spots remaining for this week as registration is quickly coming to an end. So, if you are interested, please register ASAP!


We cannot wait to see everyone at the conference!
