The Loran Scholars Foundation supports promising young Canadians who show strength of character and a commitment to serve in their communities, challenging them to fully realize their leadership potential. Loran believes that integrity, courage, grit and personal autonomy are better indicators of a young person’s overall potential than standard academic measures. To discover these traits, they administer the most comprehensive and thorough scholarship selection process in Canada.
