Unlock Your Future! Scholarship Info Seminar!
Raised in North Vancouver and now a Burnaby resident, Brittany Palmer is the creator and force behind Unlock your Future (UYF). Brittany went through the scholarship process in 2005 during her grade 12 year and was fortunate enough to win more than $56,000; $36,550 of which applied directly to her post-secondary education. In June 2009, Brittany graduated debt-free from Simon Fraser University with her Bachelor of Arts in Communication.
In September 2005, Brittany created UYF to help other students see the various funding opportunities that are available to them. To date she has helped thousands of students with the scholarship process. As a testament to the strength of the UYF program, one need only look at Brittany’s younger brother, Bo. Bo started the UYF program in his grade 10 year and graduated from high school in 2007 with over $67,000 in scholarships, surpassing Brittany herself.
