Congratulations to Jeffery Peng as a finalist for the Loran Scholarship. This year, 5, 023 people applied and Jeffery is one of 88 Canadian finalists for this prestigious award.
The selection of a Loran Scholar is unique in its attention to a young person’s character. The Loran Scholars Foundation believes that integrity, courage, grit and personal autonomy are better indicators of overall potential than standard academic measures. To discover these traits, they administer the most comprehensive and thorough scholarship selection process in Canada. Valued at $100,000 over four years, each Loran Award includes an annual stipend of $10,000 and matching tuition waiver, access to $10,000 in funding for summer internships, one-on-one mentorship and annual retreats and scholar gatherings.
