Jack Matthews International Scholarship
Named in honour of Jack Matthews, the founding director of both Pearson College of the Pacific and the Trent International Program. Awarded to an international student entering Trent University from Pearson College of the Pacific who demonstrates outstanding academic achievement, community service, leadership potential and financial need. The value of the scholarship is determined upon assessment of financial need and may extend to cover international tuition and ancillary fees of approximately $22,000 per academic year (housing excluded).
The university was founded through the efforts of a citizens' committee interested in creating a university to serve the City of Peterborough and the surrounding counties, and was created by the Trent University Act, 1962-63. The committee recruited Dean Thomas H.B. Symons of the University of Toronto to serve as chair of the academic planning committee and Symons became the university's first president.
