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.

Applications open September 8.

Any graduating high school or CEGEP student from coast-to-coast-to-coast may apply for the Loran Award. Please review our eligibility criteria and the awards we grant.
