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.
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 $9000 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.
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.
This site provides
