Our Supporters

As a privately funded charity, we are fortunate to work in partnership with universities, donors and volunteers throughout the country to invest in young Canadians who demonstrate character, a commitment to service and leadership potential.


Our partner universities demonstrate their trust in our selection process by waiving tuition for Loran Scholars. They join us in stewarding scholars throughout their undergraduate studies by designating a staff member who serves as their point of contact. This partnership is unique in Canada.

Annual Giving
Endowment Giving


Since inception, our selection process has relied on a network of dedicated volunteers who assess and interview candidates. We recruit volunteers from a variety of sectors and careers who are demonstrating in their own lives the very values we look for in our scholars. Our small staff works at the centre of this national network.

From the directors on our board to the interviewers and assessors to the mentors who commit to four years of advising a scholar, it is only through the work of volunteers that we are able to deliver such an effective enrichment program. This year, 682 volunteers gave more than 10,200 hours of their time. Meet our current volunteers.
