Blakes Scholar Award

Funding scholarships is an important part of our commitment to students. Recently, Blakes established a C$1-million National Scholarship and Awards Program to help finance the costs of legal education for exceptional and deserving students in 16 law schools across the country. Those universities are:

University of Alberta
University of Calgary
Dalhousie University
University of Manitoba
McGill University
University of Montréal
University of New Brunswick
Osgoode Hall Law School
Peter A. Allard School of Law
University of Ottawa
Queen’s University
University of Saskatchewan
University of Toronto
University of Victoria
University of Western Ontario
University of Windsor

Known as Blakes Scholars and chosen by the schools, the recipients are recognized for academic achievement, community involvement, extracurricular activities and personal accomplishments. Additional selection criteria may also include financial need and membership in a disadvantaged societal group. We also support numerous organizations and activities in law schools including clinic and moot programs, lecture series, human rights organizations, business clinics, orientation events, student newspapers, law journals, social events and sporting events.
