May 5, 2021 | Culture

By helping remove barriers to education for the next generation of young leaders, BMO is boldly growing the good for the future of the bank, a thriving economy, a sustainable future and an inclusive society. We’re proud to award the scholarships through the BMO200 William A. Downe Scholarship Program to children and legal guardians of BMO Financial Group employees who are entering into their first post-secondary degree or diploma program.

The BMO200 William A. Downe Scholarship Program was introduced in 2017, to celebrate BMO’s bicentennial anniversary and mark Bill Downe’s tenure as CEO. The first scholarship recipients were announced in 2018.

The 2021 recipients were selected by the Loran Scholars Foundation, based on the criteria of demonstrated academic achievement, community involvement and leadership potential. Each of the recipients will receive $10,000 CAD for their first year of a higher education program.
