Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholarship

Deadline: January 5, 2021

The Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation (PETF) is pleased to announce that the 2021 Scholarship competition launched on October 27, 2020. The PETF Scholarship offers a three-year leadership program designed to train engaged leaders, equipping doctoral candidates with the skills to translate their ideas into action, for the betterment of their communities, Canada, and the world. Up to 16 Scholars will be selected for the leadership program, in addition to receiving generous funding for their studies.

This year, the selection process will be slightly different as, in the spirit of Inclusive Excellence, the Foundation will welcome all candidates to apply directly to the Foundation, via a new application platform.  All candidates who submit completed applications by the January 5, 2021 deadline will be reviewed and assessed by the Foundation. In spite of this new process, the Foundation remains committed to regional representation, linguistic representation, a plurality of perspectives and disciplines, as well as other forms of diversity. During the process, and in the lead-up to interviews, university officials may be asked to confirm the candidate’s academic standing and other credentials related to their studies. It is therefore highly recommended that interested applicants consult with their supervisor and/or graduate coordinator well in advance of submitting an application.  If prospective applicants wish to have their application reviewed by FGS prior to submission, please reach out to fgs.slo@dal.ca.
