The Loran Scholars Foundation was founded in 1988 to fund outstanding students to study on Canadian university campuses. We seek well-rounded students who demonstrate character, promise of leadership and strong commitment to service in the community.
The selection of a Loran Scholar is unique in its attention to a young person’s character. It believes that integrity, courage, grit and personal autonomy are better indicators of overall potential than standard academic measures. It is judged on the basis of character, commitment to service, and leadership potential.
