Canada: $10m boost for mobility scholarship fund

The donation will expand the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships programme, which was established in 2014 to “build a community of young leaders through a global exchange of talent” and backed by the Canadian government.

Administered by Universities Canada and the Rideau Hall Foundation, the project funds both inbound and outbound mobility for students and researchers from Canada and low- and middle-income Commonwealth countries. Full Story
