June 17, 2014

The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and Community Foundations of Canada (CFC) have partnered with the federal government and the Rideau Hall Foundation to offer up to $40 million in scholarships over the next 5 years. “The Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships offer young people in Canada and throughout the Commonwealth an outstanding opportunity to gain research-based global experiences that will benefit them throughout their careers,” said AUCC President Paul Davidson. The scholarships are intended to help train leaders and community builders in Canada and abroad. AUCC will use existing networks to promote the program to PSE institutions while CFC will help steward, invest, and disburse the funding to participating universities. AUCC News Release
