Canada Merit Scholarship Foundation

The Canadian Merit Scholarship Foundation (CMSF) awards are the most prestigious scholarships for entering college students in Canada.

The Canadian Merit Scholarship Foundation grants Loran Awards to 30 students each year. Loran Awards are tenable at only twenty-five universities throughout Canada; however, the lower level awards (provincial awards and finalist awards) can be used at any public Canadian university or college. Eleven Loran scholars have gone on to win Rhodes Scholarships. As of 2007, Loran Awards are valued at $75,000 over four years of study, including summer enrichment funding, mentoring and counselling.

The Loran Awards selection criteria are extremely rigorous. The selection process is as follows:

* 1,800 nominees come as sponsored candidates, with endorsements from their schools. Evaluations are made by 26 Area Committees in 21 centres from St. John's to Victoria, and then as many as 250 semifinalists are chosen for Area interviews.

* 2,200 candidates from across Canada come through the CMSF Direct Pool as self-nominated candidates. The 12-member National Assessment Panel sits during December and January and evaluates the application of each candidate. CMSF ensures that in the Direct Pool there is proportional regional representation from across the country.

* From the group of 76 finalists in Toronto, up to 30 are offered Loran Awards.
