Overview

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.

Today, applicants are judged on academic excellence, potential and volunteerism. Candidates must be Canadian citizens and in at least their second year of a doctoral program at a Canadian or Commonwealth university.
