Canadian Paraplegic Association Scholarships - Annual
Canadian Paraplegic Association was founded under the leadership of the late John G. Counsel, who sustained a spinal cord injury during WW II and in 1945 was expanded by a group of veterans’ clubs as a self-help organization. Initially, CPA’s goal was to assist veterans who were paralyzed in securing benefits and equipment that would enable them to return to their communities. As with many non-profit agencies, CPA started with the assistance of volunteers and very little funding. Not only were they committed to addressing mobility issues, but they also wanted to give veterans a better quality of life. Over time, the founding clubs became corporate divisions and the scope of the organization expanded to include civilians. As more and more communities requested their services, CPA faced a turning point. They would now have to expand their mission and begin to address multiple mobility disabilities. The Nova Scotia Division was founded by, the late Donald E. Curren C.M., Q.C., L.L.D. in 1952. He served as Executive Director until his retirement in 1984. By that time a division had been established in each of the Atlantic Provinces and he retired as Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Division. The yearly application deadline is September 30.

Rhodes Scholarship - Deadline: September 27 - Annually
All applicants must have completed their undergraduate degree to a very high standard by 1 October of the year following application. In some constituencies, you will need to have completed your degree in the year of application. Academic achievement must be sufficiently high to assure entry to the University of Oxford, whose admissions are internationally competitive, and to give confidence that Rhodes Scholars will perform to a high academic standard in Oxford. Please see the requirements listed in your country/region’s Information for Candidates for further details. A Rhodes Scholarship is tenable at the University of Oxford and may be held for three years. Since, however, the majority of Rhodes Scholars obtain standing which enables them to take a degree in two years, appointments are made for two years in the first instance. Scholars may, however, hold the Scholarship for only 1 year. Those Scholars who elect to read for a D.Phil. at the time of admission may apply for a third year on stipend. The Rhodes Scholar must present a definite plan of study for that period satisfactory to his/her College and to the Rhodes Trustees. A Rhodes Scholar may apply to any one of the courses of study available at the University of Oxford, subject to the consent of the college or, in the case of graduate study, the relevant faculty or department. The stipend of a Rhodes Scholarship consists of a direct payment to the University and to the Scholar's College of approved fees (such as matriculation, tuition, laboratory fees, and certain other set charges), plus a maintenance allowance, which is paid directly to the Scholar at the rate of at least £3,480 per annum to cover board, lodging and other expenses. The sum provided should be sufficient to enable a Scholar to meet the necessary expenses for term-time and vacations, but those who can afford to supplement it to a modest extent from their own resources are advised to do so. Reasonable travel expenses to and from Oxford will be paid by the Trust. Application forms containing full particulars can be obtained from the Secretary of the Selection Committee for the Province of Newfoundland. Procedure for receiving an endorsement letter from the president for a Rhodes Scholarship: The endorsement letter is drafted by a professor who knows the student; the letter is reviewed and approved by the Department Head. The Head forwards the complete nomination package and endorsement letter, in electronic form, to the Deans’ office. The student is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the package is complete and received on time; The Dean of the Faculty reviews and approves the nomination package, and forwards it to the VP (Academic); The VP(Academic) reviews and approves the nomination package, and forwards it to the President with her recommendation that the President provide an endorsement letter for the student; The President provides his letter of endorsement, and sends it to the Rhodes Scholarship Committee.
Advice for Student Applicants
1. It is best to send the reference letter or package electronically ( in the past there have been nomination packages sent by internal mail and therefore late for the deadline); 2. As well, either the President, Provost or Dean maybe travelling at that time in October and therefore it is prudent to have the letter/package sent earlier rather than later; 3. Keep checking on the letters because the professors are busy and not to assume that the professor has received the e-mail request or remembers being asked to write the letter; Inquiries may be directed in writing to the Secretary of the Selection Committee to: Mr. Glenn Janes, 56 Berteau Avenue, St. John's, NL A1A 1V8, Telephone: 1.709.722.5509, firstname.lastname@example.org . See website to see more information.

These Fellowships, the gift of the first Chancellor of the University, have been established to aid and encourage students who have taken their first degree at this University to pursue their studies for the British higher degree at a university of their choice in the United Kingdom. It is not intended that students who have obtained most of their education in Britain be eligible for a Fellowship. Awards are made by the Rothermere Fellowships Trust, on the recommendation of the President of Memorial University of Newfoundland.
The conditions of the award are as follows:
- Candidates shall have completed a bachelor’s degree at Memorial University of Newfoundland and have completed or be about to complete a master’s degree either at Memorial University of Newfoundland or at another university in North America.
- Fellowships will be awarded only to candidates who are proceeding to the United Kingdom to work for a British higher degree. Fellowships will not be awarded to candidates who wish to extend their stay in Britain to obtain a further British higher degree. Persons who are full-time members of a faculty of Memorial University of Newfoundland are not eligible for a Rothermere Fellowship.
- The awards will be restricted to a maximum tenure of three years or the period requested in the candidate’s application, whichever is the lesser. Continuation beyond the first year will depend on certification of competence and satisfactory progress.
- Candidates must accept and complete the term of years for which the Fellowship has been awarded unless the requirements for the qualifications for which the Fellowship was awarded have been completed before the term expires. No interruption of tenure, postponement of the date of commencement of the Fellowship, or transfer of the Fellowship to a different field of study once the tenureship has begun will be permitted.
- One Fellowship is usually awarded each year.
- The Trust will pay a stipend of £17,300 per annum. The stipend is expected to cover living expenses. The value of the stipend is not usually negotiable, but is reviewed periodically by the Rothermere Foundation. The stipend will be credited to the Fellow’s UK bank account in quarterly instalments. The quarterly instalments will be paid in October, January, April and July; the timing of the instalments is not usually negotiable.
- The Trust will pay tuition fees for the higher degree programme on which the Fellow is registered, directly to the university concerned upon receipt of an invoice.
- The Trust will pay for a return airfare, economy class, for Fellows from Newfoundland and Labrador to England, and back to Newfoundland in each year of their Fellowship. Flights must be economy return (or a set of two economy one-way flights only where the total cost is less than that of an economy return fare). The cost of the flights will be reimbursed by a cheque raised by the Rothermere Foundation on production of proof of purchase. Fellows are advised that the refund process may take several weeks to complete, allowing time for signature of the cheque by the relevant Trustees. The Trust will reimburse the air fare in the final year of award, on the proviso that the student must use the return portion to travel back to Newfoundland within two months of completing their Fellowship.
- Completed applications must be submitted in duplicate to this office before the 30th of November and must be accompanied by the following documentation, also in duplicate:
- an official transcript of marks from Memorial University of Newfoundland and from any other university attended;
