September Update

Vanier Collegiate September Scholarship Update (over 10 scholarships are highlighted)

Blyth Academy


The Scholarship Funding

The scholarships are funded by Blyth Academy and the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust. Sam Blyth was educated at Pembroke College, Cambridge and The University of Paris and is Chair of Blyth Education in Toronto. The company is the leading provider in Canada of international high school programs.

The Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust (the “Trust”) was created on August 1, 2013. The Trust was formed from the merger of the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust and the Cambridge Overseas Trust. These were both established as charities by the University of Cambridge in the 1980s in order to provide financial support to international students on degree courses at Cambridge.

About the Scholarships

The Blyth Cambridge Trust Scholarships are offered annually to Canadian high school graduates who wish to take their undergraduate degree at Cambridge University in England. The successful candidates will be granted admission to the College of their choice at Cambridge University, full tuition for three years of undergraduate study, travel costs and a full living allowance.

The scholarships are awarded to students who for financial reasons would not otherwise be able to attend the University. Students who do have financial means are still encouraged to apply to the University and College of their choice and good candidates will be invited to interview in Toronto in late November/early December.
