Some Friendly Advice …
“In 2004-5 I had the honour to hold the first Ondaatje Scholarship. This position entitled me to spend a year as a Junior Fellow at Massey College, Toronto. (Courtesy of Sir Christopher Ondaatje – all expenses paid).
“Dear Undergraduates, how can I tell you about this life changing experience?
“I will state that it is a chance to stretch oneself intellectually. A chance to embrace a new set of ideas. An exposure to new customs, and new friendships. In brief – a new and improved you. If you have the desire for adventure, a passion to learn, and are up for a challenge… Then apply to be this year’s Ondaatje Fellow!”

History of the Scholarship
In 2003 Sir Christopher Ondaatje kindly gave a very generous donation to the University to fund one-year scholarships for Buckingham graduates or for overseas graduates undertaking postgraduate studies at Buckingham, and for Buckingham students attending Massey College, University of Toronto, to undertake postgraduate studies there. Students who obtain a Master’s degree are then eligible to apply to have their PhD studies funded by the University of Toronto.
We will be offering four scholarships for postgraduate study at Buckingham beginning in January 2017. Each scholarship will be awarded on merit and is open to competition.
The scholarships are worth up to £4,000 each towards one year’s postgraduate study.
Applications will open on Monday 10 October 2016, the closing date for applications will be Friday 11 November 2016.
