Corporate and Foundation Sponsorships

To augment the number of LGAC Scholarships, the LGAC created the Corporate and Foundation Sponsorships under which named Scholarships are funded through corporate and foundation donations.

The LGAC is very grateful to the following firms, who have sponsored LGAC Scholarships in previous years: AGF Management, AIM Trimark Funds Management, CIBC World Markets, Deloitte and Touche Consulting Group, Fidelity Investments Canada, Merrill Lynch Canada, Royal Bank Financial Group Foundation and Scotia Capital Markets. In addition, the Bank of Nova Scotia has sponsored a scholarship for a Caribbean student in London. Starting in 2009-10, the LGAC began awarding the LGAC / Molson Foundation Scholarship for Francophone Canadians on an annual basis.

To date, the LGAC has raised over $440,000 from corporate and foundation sponsors and is actively seeking new sponsors. In addition, the LGAC has received more than $40,000 from two individual members to fund a designated Scholarship, the Neil Black Memorial Scholarship. Further, the LGAC Board members commit as a group to fund at least one annual Scholarship from their individual donations. This Board-funded Scholarship has been designated as the Richard Helmstadter Memorial Scholarship in honour of the late Dr. Richard Helmstadter, former Chair of the LGAC. The Allan J. Hartley Memorial Scholarship was designated in recognition of his generous bequest to the LGAC.

The cost of studying in London is very high (approximately C$40,000 per year) and continues to escalate. While it may seem obvious, the LGAC’s Scholarship Program is intensely competitive and the winners are outstanding. If you know of a potential sponsor who would be interested in learning more about our Corporate and Foundation Sponsorship Program, please contact Brian Cardie, the LGAC Administrator, at admin@lgac.ca, who will forward the message to the appropriate LGAC Executive
