Laidlaw Scholars Program Information Session @ 33 St. George Street, CIE (room 101)

Interested in leadership and independent research? Apply to be a Laidlaw Scholar!

The Laidlaw Undergraduate Research and Leadership Scholarship was established to help develop leadership potential in the world’s top students. We are pleased to be able to bring this opportunity to Canada for the first time through the University of Toronto’s Laidlaw Scholars Programme.

There are three core elements in the Laidlaw Programme: a research project, leadership training, and building a long-lasting network for all future endeavours.

The scholarship is aimed at undergraduate students currently in their first year and second year of study at the University of Toronto.

Through a rigorous selection process, students will be selected as Laidlaw Scholars, where they will have the opportunity to interact with and learn from fellow scholars, faculty advisors and mentors around the world. Laidlaw Scholars begin their engagement in an 18-month program with independent research over the summer. They then participate in a year-long leadership program, after which they cap off their program experience with a final summer continuing their independent research. Scholars will receive a stipend (up to $5,475) per summer, which should be applied to independent research carried out under the supervision of a faculty advisor.
