IODE War Memorial Scholarship
The National Chapter of Canada IODE initiated War Memorial Doctoral Scholarships in 1918 to commemorate Canadians who sacrificed their lives for peace and freedom. Initially, bursaries were granted to children of men and women who lost their lives or who were permanently disabled while fighting for Canada. Since the first scholarships were awarded in 1921, IODE War Memorial Scholars have made important contributions to Canada and the world in medicine, science, business, politics and academia.
In honour of the 100th anniversary of the initiation of these prestigious scholarships in 2018, the scholarships are valued at $20,000 for the 2018-2019 academic year only. A maximum of three scholarships will be offered.
