These Scholarships are named in honour and memory of Carol Lee Price, an engaged, intelligent, and philanthropic woman who always had a keen interest in mathematics and philosophy. The Scholarships are specifically intended to attract and support women pursuing graduate studies in philosophy. They are also restricted to students who would otherwise have to pay international fees. (Students who pay tuition at the Quebec rate or Canadian rate, or who have been granted an International Fee Exemption, are not eligible for these scholarships.) Each scholarship is worth $32,450 CAD; up to two are awarded each year.
