  • Canadians to earn a doctorate at a foreign (i.e., non-Canadian) university
  • Non-Canadians to earn a doctorate at a Canadian university

The Trudeau Foundation is currently reviewing the Scholarship with a focus on Inclusive Excellence and Engaged Leadership. Information on this year's competition is now posted.
