Queens University

Queen's was the first Canadian University west of the Maritimes to open its doors to students. A royal Charter incorporating "Queen's College at Kingston" was granted by Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, on October 16, 1841 and the first session began March 7, 1842.

Beginning as an Arts and Theological College with two professors and ten students, Queen's has grown to a university with an annual enrollment of approximately 16,000 students. Queen's has five mahjor faculties and four schools. Queen's has always been known for its high academic standards. The link with St. Andrews goes back to 1947 when the first exchange was started. One of the Scottish traditions that Queen's has inherited is the position of Rectory. The primary function of the Rector is to serve as the students' only full voting member on the Board of Trustees. The Rector also serves on a wide variety of University committees, is an observer to the senate, and consults regularly with senior administrative officers.

The scholarships have a value of CAN$6,000.
