THE MACKENZIE KING SCHOLARSHIPS, 2013

Program

The Mackenzie King Open and Travelling Scholarships, 2014

Description

The Mackenzie King Scholarships were established as an independent trust under the will of the late Rt. Hon. William Mackenzie King (1874–1950). Two classes of Mackenzie King Scholarship are available to graduates of Canadian universities: the Open Scholarship and the Travelling Scholarship. Both are to support graduate study.
The Open Scholarship is available to graduates of Canadian universities who pursue graduate study in any discipline, in Canada or elsewhere.
The Travelling Scholarship is available to graduates of Canadian universities who pursue graduate study in the United States or the United Kingdom in the areas of international relations or industrial relations.

Value

One Open Scholarship is awarded each year. The value has recently been about $10,000 but it is subject to change.
Recently four scholarships of $11,000 each have been awarded annually, but the number and the amount are subject to change.

Deadline

February 3, 2014

Technical Eligibility

High academic achievements (all A’s or very nearly so), personal qualities and demonstrated aptitudes. Consideration will also be given to the applicant’s proposed program of study. A candidate may not hold a Mackenzie King Scholarship at the same time as other scholarships without the written approval of the Board of Scholarship Trustees. You must be a graduate of a Canadian university when tenure of the scholarship begins.

Subject Matter Eligibility

The Open Scholarship is open to graduates of any Canadian university who engage in (commence or continue) graduate study in any field, in Canada or elsewhere.

The Travelling Scholarship is open to graduates of any Canadian university who engage in (commence or continue) graduate study, in the United States or the United Kingdom, of international relations or industrial relations (including the international or industrial relations aspects of law, history, politics and economics).

Evaluation Selection criteria

The awards will be made by, and at the sole discretion of, the Board of Scholarship of Trustees.

Required Documentation

  1. The completed and signed application form (including attached sheets A and B as described on that form).
  2. Three letters of reference from persons who have an intimate knowledge of your record and ability and are able to give a critical evaluation of your plans for postgraduate study. At least two of these testimonials must be from persons under whom you have taken your major work at university, or from senior colleagues with whom you have been associated in academic teaching or research.
  3. Certified copies of official transcripts of marks and other academic records from each university you have attended. If a transcript is not available, you may substitute a certified statement by the Registrar or the Faculty concerned.

How to Apply

Applications must be made to the Faculty of Graduate Studies of your “home” university. This is the Canadian university from which you most recently graduated or at which you are currently enrolled. You must be a graduate of a Canadian university when tenure of the scholarship begins. You may apply for both scholarships with a single application if the eligibility criteria are met for both.
