Loran Scholars are chosen for their character, service and leadership potential. They deeply value integrity and honesty, are curious by nature and are interested in a wide range of subjects. Furthermore, they are willing to take meaningful risks and prioritize results over appearances. Each Loran Scholar has shown a sustained commitment to service in the community, has taken the initiative to create positive changes and is interested in working for a better world.

We received 4,273 applications from across Canada, the highest number in our history. Thank you to everyone who applied!
