Laurier Scholars Award Program

The prestigious Laurier Scholars Award offers high-achieving students the opportunity to participate in a dynamic learning environment that will foster innovative thinking and ethical, visionary leadership.

In fall 2023, Laurier will welcome its third cohort of scholars, each of whom will receive a $40,000 scholarship over a four-year period. Award recipients join a community of scholars from across the disciplines and receive mentorship, networking, research and experiential learning opportunities throughout their degree. Laurier’s commitment to academic excellence and community engagement, including social innovation and sustainability efforts, provides Laurier Scholars with a strong foundation to create new ideas and make meaningful change.

Laurier Scholars are required to meet all conditions to receive and renew their scholarship on an annual basis over a four-year period.

  • Community engagement
