To us, it’s about identifying tomorrow’s leaders – individuals with the potential to inspire others with their choices and actions.
“So far, we’ve enabled 30 exceptional individuals – from journalists, professors, scientists and politicians in the making, to visual and creative artists. Every one has gone on to achieve great things and act as an ambassador for a connected Canada and Great Britain.”
The Awards are offered annually for British students or graduates wishing to pursue a postgraduate course at a university or other appropriate institution in Canada.
The Awards, tenable for one year only, will cover airfares, fees, maintenance, accommodations and other allowances.
Candidates applying for courses of more than one year may be required to provide assurances that they have sources of additional funding available to them that will enabled them to complete the course (These awards are not available for study at a doctoral level).
Candidates should be United Kingdom citizens resident within the United Kingdom. They should hold, or expect to hold, a first or upper second-class Honours degree. In addition they should be able to show convincing reasons why they wish to study in Canada.
Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate leadership and ambassadorial qualities as well as strong academic credentials.
