    Applications are now open for the 2012-2013 Sauvé Scholars Program inviting young leaders from across the globe that want to change the world.

    It is expected that the Sauvé Scholars are highly motivated independent individual thinkers in the age group of 23 to 31 having demonstrated skills as agents of change. During this nine-month program, the scholars get the opportunity to remain away from their studies, careers or other formal commitments, leading to reflection and self-realization –personal as well as professional.

    The program brings 14 young men and women from around the world to McGill University in Montreal, Canada to embark on a rewarding personal and intellectual program combining reflection, study, travel and community engagement along with participation in conferences, seminars, cultural and sports events. Through a formal Memorandum of Understanding, Sauvé Scholars enjoy a unique status at McGill: they may audit courses at the undergraduate or post-graduate level (but not for credit) and may participate in the array of university activities and facilities for every taste and interest.

    Sauvé Scholars also get opportunity to engage and network through seminars with eminent journalists, political figures and leaders in business, academia and the arts.

    Focus Areas
    Each scholar is expected to undertake a new project in his or her chosen field – for example, arts, advocacy, business, communications, government or research – or complete one that is underway. Scholars are also invited to participate in some form of social or civic engagement for the benefit of the Montreal community.

    Between 23 and 30 years old on 31 December 2011
    A minimum of 2-3 years of professional and/or work experience (paid or unpaid). Experience may include positions in a volunteer or internship capacity
    Completed your undergraduate education, or the equivalent, by 31 July 2011 (advanced degrees are welcome but not a requirement)
    A record of accomplishment and ability to meet challenges
    Demonstrated leadership qualities
    Proven communications skills
    A highly developed curiosity about the world
    A strong interest in international and domestic issues
    An eagerness to engage with the complex issues of the day

    Allowances and Accommodation
    The Program provides a monthly allowance to cover meals and incidental expenses. This sum will be deposited in a dedicated bank account set up for each Scholar for the duration of their stay in Montreal. Round-trip transportation (one trip only) to and from Montreal is arranged for each Scholar and paid for by the Program. Scholars are required to live in the House for the full duration of the Award term.

    Last date for submission of applications is November 1, 2011.
