THE ASSOCIATION OF PROGRESSIVE MUSLIMS OF CANADA'S SCHOLARSHIP FUND AT TRENT UNIVERSITY

The Scholarship Fund was officially in place at Trent University since July 2018. The Association has raised the $26,500 needed for our Scholarship and, Trent University will convert the fund into the Association of Progressive Muslims of Canada Scholarship. in 2020.

The scholarship will be open to domestic undergraduate students of all faiths and cultures and will be merit based (80 percent and above). The funds will be held in perpetuity and the scholarship will be paid out using the interest earned on the principal.

Scholarships of $25,000 pay out $1000 per annum to the recipient.  Scholarship recipients are asked to write a letter to the scholarship donor thanking them for the scholarship and telling them a little bit about themselves and how the money will assist them in their studies.

Trent University has the distinction of being the #1 undergraduate university in Ontario (Maclean's Rankings) and #3 in Canada  (Maclean’s Rankings) and it has been a special place for students for over 50 years now.

People say you reward what you value and since the APMC was founded, its members have worked hard to prepare young people to get involved in all aspects of Canadian life by participating and fulfilling civic duties and obligations at the municipal, provincial and federal levels.

The future leaders of our country and our world are those young people who are in Trent University classrooms today.
