History of the Scholarship
In 2003 Sir Christopher Ondaatje kindly gave a very generous donation to the University to fund one-year scholarships for Buckingham graduates or for overseas graduates undertaking postgraduate studies at Buckingham, and for Buckingham students attending Massey College, University of Toronto, to undertake postgraduate studies there. Students who obtain a Master’s degree are then eligible to apply to have their PhD studies funded by the University of Toronto.
We are currently offering two scholarships for postgraduate study at Buckingham beginning in January 2016. Each scholarship is awarded on merit and is open to competition.
The closing date for applications is Friday 27 November 2016. The final decision regarding the awards will be made by the Vice-Chancellor. Candidates will be notified of the outcome at the beginning of December. For current Buckingham undergraduates, awards will be conditional upon achieving a minimum of a 2:1 in their final December examinations.
