The London Goodenough Association of Canada (“LGAC”) invites applications for Scholarships in support of graduate study in London, England for the 2015-16 academic year.

The LGAC awards Scholarships towards the cost of accommodation at Goodenough College, the pre-eminent residential college for international graduate students in London. Superbly located in central London, the College attracts members from over 80 countries, creating a rich cultural and academically diverse residential community. Goodenough College is comprised of two main residential halls: London House, which re-opened in September, 2014 after an extensive renovation, and William Goodenough House which was fully renovated in 2011-12. In the 2014 U.K. National Student Survey, Goodenough College was voted the Best Learning Environment and received the International Accommodation Quality Mark.

The LGAC is an association of over 1,800 Canadians who have lived in the College’s residences. Since 1990, it has awarded 162 funded Scholarships with a value of over $1 million. In addition to Scholarship funding, winners receive guaranteed acceptance for residence at the College – a highly sought benefit. For 2015-16, the LGAC plans to award six or more Scholarships with a value up to £5,000 each, including awards funded by individual donors, corporate sponsors and foundations, such as the Molson Foundation, sponsor of the Molson Foundation Scholarship for Francophone Canadians. Scholarships are awarded principally on the basis of academic excellence, and take into account the expected contribution that winners will make to the extracurricular life at Goodenough College. Candidates must be full-time students enrolling in an accredited graduate (or higher) program in London, or undertaking thesis research in London while enrolled elsewhere. Scholarship winners are required to reside at Goodenough College for a minimum term of eight months, although up to two awards will be considered for a minimum residency of six months to support thesis research. All Scholarships are awarded for a maximum term of one year and will not be renewed. Candidates must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.

Interested candidates must submit a completed Application Form that can be downloaded from the LGAC’s website. Candidates must also arrange to have original copies of all post-secondary institution transcripts and three letters of reference sent to the address below. Scholarship winners are required to report all other awards they receive. Additional awards may reduce the funding level of an LGAC Scholarship.

The deadline for receipt of all application materials for the 2015-16 academic year is January 26, 2015. Candidates will be notified of the results of their applications in late April, 2015. For further information, visit the LGAC website or email for more information.
