The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee scholarship program was established to support students across Canada and the Commonwealth, with the aim of developing global leadership through cross-cultural exchange, international education and knowledge transfer. This scholarship was created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's ascent to the throne, under the leadership of Governor General of Canada, David Johnston and former Prime Minister Jean Chretien. It is funded through the generous contributions of the Government of Canada, provincial governments, the private sector and individuals. The program is a collaborative effort by the Rideau Hall Foundation, Community Foundations of Canada and the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. Under this program, students who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents will have the opportunity to in internships and academic study programs at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
Projects will be added as they become available.
