Each year, Canada’s Outstanding CEO of the Year provides scholarships to ten exceptional students to further their education ambitions. Among the list of recipients of the Future Funds Awards is Andrew Chapman, a fourth-year student in UPEI’s Faculty of Business.

The CEO of the Year program, through its futures fund scholarships, encourages and supports our next generation of leaders. Scholarship recipients are chosen from ten schools of business across the country, based on their academic achievements, leadership qualities, and extracurricular activities.

Andrew Chapman is an exceptional business student and highly successful in the classroom and broader university community. He has consistently achieved excellent marks in his courses and is very highly regarded by professors within the Faculty of Business. 

Chapman is vice-president of the UPEI Business Society. He has enjoyed tremendous success as a member of UPEI’s case competition team.

He is a recipient of the Tim Banks Entrepreneurial Spirit Award, the UPEI Faculty Association Bronze Medal for third-highest average (tied) across all faculties at UPEI, the BDO Canada Scholarship in Accounting, the PEI Credit Union Award, and the university prize for the student with the highest average in the third year of the business program. He has also been named to the dean’s list for each year he has been a student at UPEI.

“This honour is well deserved,” said Dr. Juergen Krause, dean of the Faculty of Business at UPEI. “Andrew exemplifies a successful business student. He excels in his academic studies, serves his peers and fellow students in the faculty through his engagement in the Business Society, and he is an ambassador for UPEI nationally and internationally as a member of our successful case competition teams. ”
