About the program
The QES program was created to improve global talent exchange between Canada and other nations. The program aims to develop the next generation of innovative leaders and community builders by providing enriched academic, professional and cross-cultural experiences and by facilitating lasting local and global community engagement. There have been 95 projects, administered by 44 Canadian universities and with over 2200 scholarships already awarded.
The program requires all scholars to participate in leadership development and community engagement activities and in the network of Queen Elizabeth Scholars.
