Mackenzie King Memorial Scholarships
The Mackenzie King Scholarships were established under the will of the Rt. Hon. W.L. Mackenzie King (1874-1950), who was the Prime Minister of Canada 1921-26, 1926-30, and 1935-48.

Can I hold a Mackenzie King Scholarship with other awards?
According to the Mackenzie King Scholarship website, a candidate may not hold a Mackenzie King Scholarship at the same time as other scholarships without the written approval of the Board of Scholarship Trustees. This approval is usually given provided that the candidate’s total scholarship support, including the Mackenzie King Scholarship, does not exceed a maximum amount defined by the Board. Lately the maximum amount has been the candidate’s expected tuition fees plus CAD$18,000 (the "cap"), but the figure is subject to change.
If you knows at the time of application that you already have scholarship funding for the next academic year that exceeds the "cap", there is no point in applying.
Please note that "Scholarship support" does not include salary for services such as research or teaching assistance.
What is the format for the reference letters?
The three reference letters must include a handwritten signature, contact details, and be written on official letterhead. Once you created an application in GA3, you will need to enter your references' contact details. They will then receive an email to upload a reference letter. Make sure your referees upload their reference letter before February 1st, otherwise your application will be considered incomplete.
Do I need to submit the up-to-date SFU official transcripts?
If you are selected by SFU to move forward in the competition, our office will contact you by email and request for an official SFU transcript at that time.
Please submit your official transcripts to:
