TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.
BMO Financial Group today announced a contribution of $250,000 over five years to support the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships. These scholarships are designed to enable promising young people to build and share their skills, knowledge and experience.
BMO presented the donation to the former prime minister, the Right Honourable Jean Chretien - a leading supporter of the trust - during the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the bank's Institute for Learning.
"This prestigious scholarship serves as an enduring tribute to Queen Elizabeth II and will provide funding for deserving university students across Canada," said Bill Downe, Chief Executive Officer, BMO Financial Group. "There is probably no single person in Canada today who has done more for higher education in this country than our former prime minister. We are honoured to be a part of the Commonwealth Scholarships and we hope the bank's support will encourage others in Corporate Canada to do the same."
