We are excited to announce the 30th class of Loran Scholars. This year, we selected 34 exceptional young Canadians from a pool of 5,089 applicants, based on evidence of character, commitment to serving their communities, and leadership potential.

The selection of a Loran Scholar is unique in its attention to a young person’s character. We believe that integrity, courage, grit, and personal autonomy are better indicators of overall potential than standard academic measures. To discover these traits, we administer the most comprehensive and thorough scholarship selection process in Canada. Our 400+ volunteers interviewed 518 semi-finalists and then invited 88 finalists to our National Selections on February 1st and 2nd. Each of the 34 Loran Scholars was interviewed or assessed by up to 12 different people over the course of three months.

Loran Scholars receive opportunities to explore, develop, and share their talents over four years of undergraduate study at any of our 25 partner universities. Valued at $100,000, each Loran Award includes an annual stipend of $10,000 and matching tuition waiver, access to $10,000 in funding for summer internships, one-on-one mentorship, and annual retreats and scholar gatherings.
