Our commitment to
The University of Regina offers a growing number of
international learning opportunities, with more than
800 domestic students studying abroad in the
past four years. Now, through the University of
Regina Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee
Scholarship, even more students will gain the
opportunity to develop global perspectives and
the skills they need to be citizens of the world.
From 2015 to 2018, the scholarship will
provide 40 graduate students funding to study
at partner universities in the Commonwealth
countries of Malawi, Jamaica, Antigua and
New Zealand. It will also provide 12 students
from those countries the opportunity to pursue
graduate study in Regina.
The Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond
Jubilee Scholarships program is a joint
initiative of the Rideau Hall Foundation,
Community Foundations of Canada and
Universities Canada. The $40-million program
was created in 2014 through contributions
from the Government of Canada, provincial
governments including Saskatchewan, the
private sector and individuals worldwide.
Darlene Sorensen, studying for a Master of Administration, is
one of many University of Regina students who have
benefited from an international study experience.
