The Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship

Destiny Solutions launched The Mary Cone Barrie Scholarship Award in 2008 as a tribute to a trusted friend and mentor. Dr. Mary Cone Barrie (1945-2009) was our first customer and the person who inspired us to do great things. She was the Director of the School of Continuing Studies at the University of Toronto and remains known for her attentiveness to student needs and a devotion to her instructors and staff.

The Marry Cone Barrie Scholarship is a yearly program that was established to recognize the efforts of learners who are improving their lives through continuing education and workforce development. We understand how difficult it can be to embrace the concept of lifelong learning, to go back to school with a full time job and a family. We are proud that we can contribute even a little bit to help make life a little easier.

“We value the critical role lifelong learning plays in enabling millions of people to transform their lives during these turbulent times.”

Shaul Kuper, Founder & CEO
Destiny Solutions
