About the Community

The Chancellor's Community is a philanthropic network of leaders from business, academia, and the community who are dedicated to transforming the lives of talented U of R students through education, and empowering the next generation of leaders.  

By supporting high-value, renewable undergraduate scholarships and graduate student fellowships, along with mentoring and networking opportunities, and more, the Chancellor’s Community aspires to breakdown barriers and open up doors for exceptional students along their academic journey.

Chancellor's Scholarship

Beginning in Fall 2024, the Chancellor's Scholarship will be awarded annually to 14 undergraduate domestic students who meet a variety of criteria, including a minimum admission average of 95 per cent. Scholarship recipients will receive $10,000 per year for up to four years, plus on-campus housing for their first year. One of the scholarships will be reserved for Indigenous applicants and one for out-of-province applicants. Learn more.
