Mackenzie King Open Scholarship

Description: The Mackenzie King Scholarships were established as an independent trust under the will of the late Rt. Hon. William Mackenzie King (1874-1950).
Two classes of Mackenzie King Scholarship are available to graduates of Canadian universities: the Open Scholarship and the Travelling Scholarship. Both are to support graduate study.
You may apply for both The Mackenzie King Open Scholarship and the Mackenzie King Traveling Scholarship with a single application if the eligibility criteria are met for both.
Value: Has been $9,000 lately but is subject to change.
Eligibility: The Mackenzie King Open Scholarship is open to graduates of any Canadian university who engage in (commence or continue) postgraduate study (mater's or doctoral) in any field, in Canada or elsewhere.
The awards will be based on high academic achievements (typically all A’s or very nearly so), personal qualities, and demonstrated aptitudes. Consideration will also be given to the applicant’s proposed program of study.
Application Procedure: Candidates are required to submit their applications by the deadline directly to the Canadian university from which they have received (or will receive) their most recent degree (designated their "home" university). Supporting documentation is also to be sent to the same location.
Any applications sent to the UBC office will be forwarded to the home university and as a consequence may miss the deadline.
A complete application consists of the following:
  • The completed and signed application form (including attached sheets A and B as described on that form).
  • Three letters of reference from persons who have an intimate knowledge of your record and ability and are able to give a critical evaluation of your plans for graduate study. At least two of these testimonials must be from persons under whom you have taken your major work at university, or from senior colleagues with whom you have been associated in academic teaching or research.
  • Certified copies of official transcripts of marks and other academic records from each university you have attended. If a transcript is not available, you may substitute a certified statement by the Registrar or the Faculty concerned.
