The Foundation is seeking candidates who are audacious, original, and forward-thinking.  Up to 16 doctoral Scholars are selected each year and receive generous funding for their studies.  This scholarship program supports doctoral students pursing research in one or more of the Foundation’s Four Themes:  Human Rights and Dignity, Responsible Citizenship, Canada and the World, and People and their Natural Environment.

Value: Up to $40,000 stipend plus up to $20,000 research and travel allowance per year for three years

Application deadline: 5 January 2021 at 11:59 pm EST (8:59 pm PST)

New for 2021 competition: Interested applicants apply directly to the Trudeau Foundation to be considered in the national competition; all interested and eligible applicants may apply.
