In partnership with universities, donors and volunteers across the country, we’re investing in the future of Canada. We offer the country’s largest and most comprehensive four-year undergraduate award (valued at $100,000) to young Canadians on the basis of character, service and the promise of leadership.
In a society that believes so strongly in tangible rankings and ratings, we colour outside the lines.
To find the next generation of leaders for Canada, we look beyond the transcript and find the promise of character: integrity, courage, compassion, determination and a high level of personal autonomy.
We discover these qualities by administering the country’s most intensive and personalized scholarship selection process. Find out more.
