Assist an Applicant

Help encourage promising applicants

Teachers, counsellors, and school administrators play an essential role in helping Loran identify students who show exceptional promise of character, service and leadership —young people with a guiding sense of purpose, the capacity to collaborate to drive change, an enthusiasm to grow by pushing their limits, and the potential to serve and lead with integrity.

The students this program seeks may not see anything special about what they are doing, they just do what needs to be done. This is where you come in. These students may need you to tap them on the shoulder, hold up the mirror to who they are, and encourage them to apply for the Loran Award. You play a critical role in connecting these students with a community that will continue to encourage them to realize their full potential, for their benefit and the benefit of our collective future.

As there is no limit to the number of Loran applicants from a single school, we encourage you to support any and all well-suited students who meet our eligibility criteria.

To learn more about the Loran Award and the application process, we encourage you to attend one of our informational webinars.

For promotional and educational materials that will equip you to best support your students, access Loran’s resources for applicants.

Teachers Building
Leaders Award

We believe teachers play a pivotal role in providing foundational inspiration, guidance, and growth opportunities for future Loran Scholars. As a way to celebrate those teachers whose support had a profound impact on their development, graduating scholars are given the opportunity to recognize primary and secondary educators with the Loran Teachers Building Leaders Awards, supported by the McCall MacBain Foundation. To date, Loran Scholars have recognized 201 teachers across 150 schools since 2018.

“Receiving the Loran Teachers Building Leaders Award was a career highlight, a humbling acknowledgement that – as a teacher of 26 years – I was being validated for helping to shape the path of an exceptional student and person, and that my approach did have a lasting positive effect on others. I was delighted to find out an award of this caliber existed, and my acknowledgement also meant I could be an inspiration to other educators to keep working, as their passion and guidance is needed now more than ever and that one day too they could feel this euphoria of being acknowledged and recognized.”
