Eligibility James R. Johnston was the first member of the Nova Scotia African Canadian Community to graduate in Law from Dalhousie University in 1898, and he played a very active public, professional and community role throughout his short life. The James Robinson Johnston Graduate Scholarship is supported by the Endowment for the James Robinson Johnston Chair in Black Canadian Studies, which was established in July 1996 "...to bring Black culture, reality, perspectives, experiences and concerns into the Academy". In the spirit of James Robinson Johnston, who believed that the best interests of African Canadians would be served through education, Dalhousie University each year offers a renewable graduate level scholarship to a promising African Canadian student, providing him/her the opportunity to pursue studies at the graduate level in the arts, sciences, health professions, management, law, dentistry, and medicine.
Eligibility: * Scholarships will be awarded to African Canadian citizens or permanent residents in Masters or Doctoral programs at Dalhousie University. * Applicants with first class standing in their undergraduate program who are intending to pursue studies in any discipline in which Dalhousie offers graduate degrees are welcome to apply once they have been accepted into a program. * Applications may also be submitted by departments for eligible students who have been accepted into a graduate program. * While any discipline is eligible, applications are particularly encouraged from students whose program of study has the potential to contribute to African Canadian community enhancement and advancement. * Award recipients will be identified by the Faculty of Graduate Studies Scholarship Committee. * The general Dalhousie Graduate Scholarship rules will be applied except that the award must be taken up upon commencing the first year of the degree program. * Scholarships are awarded at the Masters or Doctoral level.
