The Mackenzie King Scholarships for graduate study 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.
A scholarship is available from the Mackenzie King Scholarship Trust for a graduate of Harvard University to pursue graduate studies at a Canadian university. Further information about this scholarship is available from Harvard University, to which application must be made.
The Open Scholarship is available to graduates of
Canadian universities who pursue graduate study in any discipline, in
Canada or elsewhere. One Open Scholarship is awarded each year. The
value has recently been about $10,000 but it is subject to change.
The Travelling Scholarship is available to graduates of Canadian universities who pursue graduate study in the United States or the United Kingdom in the areas of international relations or industrial relations. Recently four scholarships of $11,000 each have been awarded annually, but the number and the amount are subject to change.
