LORAN Scholars Foundation Award

http://www.loranscholar.ca/

Custom Metadata Fields

Overview

In partnership with universities, donors and volunteers across the country, the LORAN Scholars Foundation offers the country’s largest and most comprehensive four-year undergraduate award (valued at $100,000), providing young leaders of character with opportunities to develop their talents and work towards a better world. Here are the details from their website:

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.

The selection of a Loran Scholar is unique in its attention to a young person’s character. We believe that integrity, courage, grit and personal autonomy are better indicators of overall potential than standard academic measures. To discover these traits, we administer the most comprehensive and thorough scholarship selection process in Canada.

Tenable at 25 partner universities, the Loran Award is valued at $100,000 over four years, including mentorship, funding for summer internships and participation in an extensive network of past and present scholars. This year [2016] we are offering up to 32 Loran Awards. In addition, we will grant up to 94 finalist and provincial awards ($2,000 or $3,000 each) to promising candidates.

We will interview 400 candidates regionally in 21 cities across the country and invite the top 84 to Toronto for national selections weekend in February 2017. Students describe the process as an opportunity to reflect on their motivations and to imagine the lives they want to live. Whether or not they are selected for an award, many students come away from interviews with new connections, friendships and ideas.

Applications are now open for the Loran Awards. Grade 12 and CEGEP students planning to enter university in 2017 may submit school-sponsored applications before October 19, 2016 or apply to our direct pool before October 26.

Eligibility Criteria for High School Students

  • Be in your final year of uninterrupted full-time studies in high school.
  • Present a minimum cumulative average of 85%.
  • Hold Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status.
  • Be at least 16 years of age by September 1st of the following year.

Renewable for up to four years, with a total value of $100,000, each Loran Award includes:

  • An annual stipend of $10,000
  • A matching tuition waiver from one of 25 partner universities
  • Personal mentorship from a Canadian leader
  • Access to our network and up to $10,000 in funding for summer internships in three different sectors
  • An orientation expedition through Algonquin Park
  • Annual retreats and scholar gatherings

We also grant approximately 90 finalist and provincial awards to promising candidates who are not selected as Loran Scholars.

The application is entirely online. Students planning to enter university in 2017 may apply now at https://apply.loranscholar.ca

An overview and sample application form is also available.

There are two ways to apply for the Loran Award, with different deadlines:
