  • Title: Friends of Canadian Education
    Descriptive info: our history.. |.. our mission.. |.. board members.. our approach.. supported universites.. FCE was born out of the collaboration between The Canadian Merit Scholarship Foundation (CMSF) and The Canadian Morehead Program.. The Morehead Award (1951) is the senior independent merit award for undergraduate study in the USA; CMSF was founded in 1988 by nine trustees all of whom had been associated with the Canadian Morehead Program in Toronto.. CMSF s founders said they were responding to what we perceived as a gap in the Canadian system of merit-based financial assistance to university students.. Such assistance tends to be directed to two groups those with exceptionally high academic averages, via university scholarship programs, and those with exceptional abilities as athletes, via national teams programs.. Only a small proportion of overall financial aid is directed at those who show promise of the leadership and other talents that will make their communities better places both during and after their university careers.. (CMSF annual report, 1992)..  ...   Loran scholars (known as CMSF National Scholars until 2007).. Most of those advisers also serve as members of CMSF Area Selection Committees.. The aggregate commitments of the Loran awards programs to date amount to some $40 million, and even though its first class of beneficiaries graduated from university in 1994, its alumni have already carved out distinguished careers both in Canada and abroad.. Its selection process is the most intensive and personalized scholarship evaluation in Canada with approximately 300 volunteer assessors and interviewers who help CMSF to select 30 Loran award winners out of approximately 4,000 candidates nationwide annually.. FCE was founded in 1993-4 in recognition of the essentially global character of the CMSF undertaking, as well as in recognition of the fact that many American residents wanted to support the foundation but lacked an IRS-approved vehicle for donating to it.. FCE s annual benefactions in support of CMSF and the CMSF universities have amounted to between $10,000 and $35,000US.. back to top..

  • Title: Friends of Canadian Education
    Descriptive info: alumni profiles.. Below are a sample of alumni of CMSF who have demonstrated leadership outside of Canada:.. Sarah Michael Loran 1993.. Social Development Specialist, World Bank.. Washington , DC, USA.. Currently working for the World Bank on civil society and governance issues with a strong emphasis on Eastern Europe, Sarah has been committed to advancing global equity ever since leading her high school's debating society and committing fully to the school ministry.. After receiving her B.. A.. and B.. Sc.. at Queen's University, she spent four years at Trinity College, Cambridge (UK), initially on a British Chevening Scholarship, later as a fellow of the college.. She received the Ph.. D.. from Cambridge in 2001 and then became a research associate at the Global Equity Initiative at Harvard University, where she led initiatives focused on advancing global health equity by strengthening the health workforce in low-income countries.. Sarah has always maintained a high level of community involvement and active leadership: for example, she presided over Trinity College's graduate student society at the University of Cambridge and competed as a member of their highly regarded women's rowing team, and has undertaken field research in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Senegal and Bangladesh.. Sarah's first book, Undermining Development: The Absence of Power among Local NGOs in Africa , was published by James Currey Publishers and Indiana University Press in the spring of 2004.. CMSF's founder Bob Cluett once told me that life's biggest challenge was to 'take meaningful risks.. ' I've never forgotten those words, and, for me, that's the most important thing about CMSF.. That encouragement has helped me to have so many meaningful experiences (an unforgettable summer spent in an Aboriginal community in the northern Yukon is but one example), to make meaningful friendships I still treasure today and to take meaningful risks in all aspects of my life.. Diane Nalini deKerckhove Loran 1992.. University of Guelph, Physics Faculty.. Guelph , Ontario.. Combining physics and music has been a passion for Diane since she was a student at Villa Sainte Marcelline in Montreal, where she edited and published her school paper, presided over her school's welcoming club and was a member of Montreal's Ballets de la Jeunesse.. From these experiences, Diane went on to McGill University, where she completed her B.. in physics , followed by doctoral studies in applied nuclear physics at Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship.. Never one to stop learning, Diane followed that up with three years of post-doctoral research on an 1851 Research Fellowship, culminating with a placement at the  ...   placing seventh in the Branham 300 list of the top Canadian wireless organizations.. Lucas also received the Ernst and Young 2004 Entrepreneur of the Year award in the IT category.. His success comes from years of honing his leadership skills; in high school, he founded his own computer software training company.. Lucas proceeded to the University of Waterloo, where he completed his B.. in electrical engineering in 1996.. In his years at Redknee, he has driven the development of the company's product portfolio, sales and overall organization.. Prior to working at Redknee, Lucas gained considerable experience in sales, operations, and business and product development with a variety of international companies such as Nortel Networks ( USA, UK, Canada), George Weston Canada Inc.. and Clearnet Communications Inc.. , as well as KS Computers Partnership and Synaxis Proprietorship.. For Lucas, community contribution comes in the form of positioning Redknee as a CMSF Sustaining Benefactor ($10,000+) and interviewing potential scholars throughout the selection process.. Lucas states that, as a Loran scholar, I have been able to focus my energies to maximize every experience, which in turn resulted in my ability to have a much greater positive impact on the community.. CMSF means a long-term commitment to fulfilling the potential of oneself and one's contribution to the community.. Warren Tranquada Loran 1992.. Partner, Aperio, LLC.. East Orange , NJ; Toronto, ON; London, UK.. Warren Tranquada is the co-founder and a Partner of Aperio, LLC, and runs its US office.. Aperio is a consulting firm that works with non-profit clients in the US, Canada and the UK , helping organizations diversify their revenue though non-traditional and entrepreneurial means primarily through the creation of businesses.. Aperio is recognized as an international leader in the social entrepreneurship movement.. Prior to Aperio, Warren was a vice-president in the small business group at The Chase Manhattan Bank, where he managed and developed strategic partnerships.. He also has consulting experience with Bain Company, an internationally recognized strategic consulting firm.. Warren has an MBA from Harvard Business School (with distinction), and a Bachelor of Commerce from McGill University (with great distinction).. He lives in New Jersey with his wife Alexine, and children Gabriella and Calvin.. Warren received a Loran Award in 1992, and today notes that:.. the selection process of CMSF is rigorous and transparent.. Scholars understand the level of trust that the selection committee has placed in them.. Combining that with the stories that you hear from other scholars certainly creates pressure, and a genuine desire to live up to the high expectations..
