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.

“I am now starting a PhD at the University of Edinburgh with Professor Leigh-Brown, a world leader in the field of viral evolution. There is no doubt in my mind that this was made possible by the Canada Memorial Foundation scholarship.” Manon, Bio-informatics Evolutionary Genetics, year of scholarship 2010
