The Africa Institute at Western was awarded this prestigious scholarship in 2015. Since then, Western students have had the opportunity to take part in experiential learning experiences in Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, and Tanzania. Conversely, several Faculties at Western have also hosted Graduate students in the Ph.D, Masters and or Visting Short Term Research Only streams from Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Rwanda, Uganda, and Tanzania enrolled through the Collaborative Graduate Program in Global Health Systems.  

The Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships aim to activate a dynamic community of young global leaders across Canada and the Commonwealth to create lasting impacts both at home and abroad through cross-cultural exchanges encompassing international education, discovery and inquiry, and professional experiences.
