Providing University Scholarships

The Foundation annually supports students across Canada through a range of university scholarships. By placing a high value on character, entrepreneurial energy, and service to the community, the Foundation helps to position today’s young leaders for national and global success. From providing entry-level tuition to graduate-level research grants, the Foundation supports young Canadians who are pursuing a path to excellence across a range of disciplines.


One such scholarship program is the W. Garfield Weston Scholars Program at Wilfrid Laurier University, regarded as one of their most prestigious scholarships. For more than 15 years, cohorts of highly talented and motivated students are chosen as W. Garfield Weston Scholars, each representing the best from the Arts, Science, Business and Music Faculties. Shared learning experiences, including opportunities to volunteer overseas, broaden students’ perspectives and motivate them to implement new learnings back in their home communities.
