Genevieve Kilburn-Smith, is one of two students from Calgary who has been selected by Blyth Scholars and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European and International Trust to attend university at Cambridge, UK. The scholarship is worth approximately $250,000 over three years. Genevieve will be attending Pembroke College, University of Cambridge to study Theology and Religious Studies.
In the fall of 2015, the scholarship committee reviewed all applications and invited shortlisted candidates to Toronto for interviews that were conducted by Canadian alumni of the University and Cambridge admission heads. The scholarship recipients were selected based on their outstanding academic achievement, superior intellectual ability, and community involvement, in addition to financial need.
The chair of Blyth Scholars, Sam Blyth, is a graduate of the University and has been supporting Canadians at Cambridge for more than ten years. He said: “I am delighted to support undergraduate scholars from Canada attending Cambridge. I had the advantage of a Cambridge education as a young Canadian. These awards are an expression of gratitude, as well as a gift to Canadian scholars who should excel at the University.”
About the Trust
The Blyth Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Scholarships are among the most valuable awards available in Canada for students wishing to pursue an undergraduate degree. Tenable at any University of Cambridge undergraduate college the scholarships provide full funding for tuition fees, maintenance, and travel between Canada and Cambridge for three years. The approximate value of each scholarship is $250,000 over three years.
The scholarships are jointly funded by Blyth Scholars and the Cambridge Commonwealth, European, and International Trust.
About The University of Cambridge
The University of Cambridge is one of the leading academic institutions in the world. Affiliates of the University have won more Nobel Prizes than any other institution in the world. The Cambridge Commonwealth Trust was founded in 1982 by the University to support international students from Commonwealth countries, and was subsequently merged with the Cambridge Overseas Trusts to create the Cambridge Commonwealth, European, and International Trust.
Bishop Grandin hosted a basketball tournament for eight of its feeder schools from January 21st – 23rd. The senior girls’ and boys’ teams from St. Albert the Great, Monsignor J.S. Smith, St. Bonaventure, St. Matthew, Don Bosco, St. Stephen, St. Isabella and St. Augustine provided the crowds with an impressive level of play over the course of the tournament. Both finals saw Monsignor Smith facing off against St. Stephen. Both were tremendously exciting games, but in the end, both the Senior Boys’ and St. Girls’ championships were won by St. Stephen. Thanks to all the teams for a great weekend of basketball! Many thanks also to all the coaches, teachers and students who helped provide us with a preview of the up and coming stars from our feeder schools. We look forward to seeing you in Ghost uniforms in the future!
