These awards are an expression of gratitude, as well as a gift to Canadian scholars who should excel at the University.”

In the fall of 2014, the scholarship committee reviewed all applications and invited shortlisted candidates to Toronto for interviews that were conducted by Canadian alumni of the University and Cambridge admission heads.
