Unlock your Future is a company dedicated to helping students navigate the scholarship process and fund their academic dreams.   

Collectively, Brittany Palmer and her younger brother Bo won 35 scholarships totalling over $125,000 and completely funded their post-secondary degrees. Brittany founded Unlock your Future in 2005 to help other students view post-secondary education as an attainable opportunity rather than a daunting financial obstacle.       

Brittany presents the dynamic Unlock your Future Scholarship Seminar to help students see the various funding opportunities that are available while teaching a step-by-step program for navigating the process. Brittany conquers common scholarship fears and misconceptions to demonstrate that scholarships are indeed possible. 

Since its creation in 2005, Brittany has presented to tens of thousands of students, parents and educators. In addition to the seminar, UYF also offers private consultation sessions, an online Student Resource Centre and an Unlock your Future Scholarship Workbook and Kit. 

In 2009, Brittany launched the Unlock your Future Scholarships which are open to students who have participated in an aspect of the Unlock your Future program. Brittany has personally awarded a total of over $16,000 in UYF Scholarships to date. 

Unlock your Future was recognized with the Youth Entrepreneur Award at the 17th Annual Cultural DIVERSEcity Awards in Vancouver: an event that celebrates forward-thinking local businesses.
