The David and Liliane Stewart Scholarship arrives at the MEC!

We are honoured to present a new scholarship for MEC residents! The David and Liliane Stewart Scholarship allows a Canadian registered in a Master or Doctoral degree to consider pursuing part of his or her graduate studies in Paris under optimal conditions, by financing their accommodation at the Maison des étudiants canadiens.

This scholarship is funded by the Macdonald Stewart Foundation, of which we are proud partners.

The Macdonald Stewart Foundation continues the generosity of Sir W.C. Macdonald and the Stewart Family, initiated in the 1860s by Sir William C. Macdonald, who made his fortune through the sale of tobacco. The Foundation is a Canadian non-profit organization established in 1973 by Montreal philanthropists David and Liliane Stewart following the sale of Macdonald Tobacco Inc.

The Foundation is attentive to the various needs of the community, working independently or in cooperation with public and private organizations in the areas of education, medicine, culture and especially Canadian heritage where it has provided major financial assistance to many projects.
