His Excellency Gaston Barban, High Commissioner of Canada to South Africa, and Ms. Elissa Golberg, Assistant Deputy Minister for Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development, congratulated the South African recipients of two Canadian scholarships – the African Leaders of Tomorrow and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee scholarships.

The African Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship Program grants scholarships to young African women and men to pursue a Master’s degree in public administration, public policy or public finance in Canada.

The recipient of the African Leaders of Tomorrow is

  • Mr. Phillip Mogodi who will be studying towards a Master in Public Policy at University of Toronto

The Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Scholarship is available to students from Commonwealth countries to attend a Canadian university for master or doctoral studies. The recipients of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee scholarships are

  • Mr. Moosa Khanyi who will be undertaking a PhD;
  • Ms. Noluvu Makohliso; and
  • Mr. Malose Langa who will both be studying towards Master of Science degrees.

All three students are currently at the University of Limpopo and will be attending Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario.

High Commissioner Barban said: “It is a great honour for me to announce the first recipients of both the African Leaders of Tomorrow and the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee scholarships. It is additionally special as it was in this exact location, in 2013, that Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the African Leaders of Tomorrow scholarship in honour of the late Nelson Mandela.” Additional background on the scholarships below.

BACKGROUND
The African Leaders of Tomorrow (ALT) Scholarship Program
The African Leaders of Tomorrow (ALT) Scholarship Program commemorates the late Nelson Mandela’s commitment to social justice and equity by supporting young African professionals to become leaders in public policy and administration. This scholarship was announced by Prime Minister Stephen Harper during his visit to South Africa in 2013, for the funeral of the late Nelson Mandela.
The ALT Scholarship Program will grant scholarships to young African women and men to pursue a Master’s degree in public administration, public policy or public finance in Canada.
Scholarships will be awarded based on merit to young professionals from a range of sub-Saharan countries with the objective of contributing to a strong and effective public sector in sub-Saharan Africa.
For program of study starting in September 2015, only citizens from South Africa and Senegal were eligible. The program starting September 2016 will be launched in August 2015 and will be open to citizens from most countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
This program is undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), and The MasterCard Foundation.

Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships
In 2012, Canada celebrated the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne. To honour this milestone, Governor General David Johnston, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien announced the creation of this inspiring scholarship in 2014.
The scholarships are open to students from Commonwealth countries to attend a Canadian university for masters or doctoral studies. The Scholarships form part of university-designed projects that address pressing local, national and global issues. Queen Elizabeth Scholars will
become the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, inventors and leaders. Through this unique international exchange of talent, students will enrich their communities and discover that anything is possible.
More than 1,900 scholarships for university students will be funded through the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships. With initial investments of more than $40 million, including $10 million from the Government of Canada, this initiative will build a dynamic community of young global leaders in Canada and throughout the Commonwealth over the next four years.
The Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships program is a joint initiative of the Rideau Hall Foundation, Community Foundations of Canada and the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. It was created through unique contributions from the Government of Canada, provincial governments, the private sector and individuals worldwide.
