The Trudeau Doctoral Scholarship

 

Description

The Trudeau Scholarship is the most prestigious doctoral award in Canada. It offers the opportunity to interact within an exceptional community of leaders and committed individuals in every field of the social sciences and humanities. The scholarship provides a generous stipend and comprises a substantial yearly allowance for research and travel, which helps support audacious interdisciplinary research and original fieldwork. Moreover, each Trudeau Scholar is paired with a distinguished Trudeau Mentor selected among the most eminent Canadian practitioners in all sectors of public life. Scholars also participate in events organized by the Foundation and may request financial and logistical support to hold their own workshops. Every year, over 150 scholarship applications from PhD students at Canadian and foreign universities undergo a rigorous selection process. Fifteen scholarships are awarded every year.
