ILAC Announces $100,000 in Leadership Scholarships for Hispanic Women

In Partnership with CHBA

TORONTO –  Once again, the International Language Academy of Canada (ILAC) is taking the lead in creating opportunities for women around the world by providing $100,000 in scholarships for Hispanic women to study English in Canada.  The scholarships are being offered in partnership with the Canadian Hispanic Business Alliance (CHBA) and are open to young women from all Spanish speaking countries.

The official opening of the scholarships will take place at ILAC in Toronto on May 29th. There are 10 scholarships available and each scholarship is valued at $10,000 for one academic year.  The selected scholars are expected to begin their studies in September 2018 or January 2019.

“Our goal is to empower young women in Spanish speaking countries by giving them the chance to learn English at a world-class institution in Canada,” says Jonathan Kolber, Co-Founder of ILAC, whose wife is originally from Venezuela. Ilan Cohen, other Co-Founder of ILAC, speaks fluent Spanish and is married to a woman from Colombia.

In order to be eligible for the scholarships, students will be asked to submit a one-minute video describing their achievements and goals in community service and leadership. The submissions will be judged on the basis of their content and creativity. The CHBA will be responsible for vetting the submissions before presenting them to a formal panel of judges made up of diplomatic representatives, past winners of TD Bank’s “10 most influential Hispanic Canadians” awards program, two representatives from ILAC and one from CHBA.

Latin America is an important market for ILAC, with 39% of its students from the region, including Brazil. Since its inception in 2007, ILAC has supported the CHBA’s “10 most influential Hispanic Canadians” awards program and has been instrumental in promoting Canada as a premier study destination for students from Spanish speaking countries.

The I Love ILAC song inspired its own hashtag and is still as catchy and easy to remember as when it was created over 10 years ago.
Sing along, have fun and remember the good times you had in Canada
