Empowering Scholars to become the Engaged Leaders of tomorrow

Through its Scholarship, Mentorship and Fellowship programs, the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation focuses on the leadership development of our Scholars.


    • More than a scholarship, the Pierre Elliott Trudeau scholarship empowers doctoral researchers to have meaningful impact in the world.

      Our renewed Scholarship program represents a gateway for courageous, bold, original thinkers who are hungry to play a leadership role, and inspire positive change. This three-year program is designed to train Engaged Leaders, equipping outstanding doctoral candidates with the tools to share and apply their research and be creative leaders in their institutions and communities.

      For more details on the program and to apply, please visit the Doctoral Scholarships section.


    • Under the Foundation’s renewed programming model, our Mentors focus on the leadership development of our doctoral Scholars, empowering them to have meaningful impact in the world. Mentors act as leadership trainers, guides, and advisors to Scholars during the three-year program. 

      For more details on the program, please visit the Mentors section.


    • 2019 marked the beginning of a renewed programming model for the Foundation. While our Fellowship no longer involves a research project as was the case until 2018, Fellows now play a critical role in the leadership development of our doctoral Scholars, empowering them to become the engaged leaders of tomorrow. They act as outstanding public educators, dynamic professors and intellectual guides to Scholars over a three-year program cycle.
