TORONTO, March 20th, 2019 – The International Language Academy of Canada (ILAC) has announced $100,000 in scholarships for 10 young Turkish women to study English in Canada. The scholarships are open to female students living in Turkey who have demonstrated leadership, entrepreneurship and service in their communities.

This is the third year in a row that ILAC has made a pledge of $100,000 CAD in scholarships to empower girls around the world as part of the ILAC Foundation. In 2018, ILAC welcomed 10 young women from across Latin America to study English in Toronto. The year before, ILAC funded studies for female refugees escaping the conflict in Syria. Other initiatives have included scholarships for girls in Ukraine and from the Middle East.

“Education is a powerful tool that can truly change a woman’s life,” says Jonathan Kolber, Co-Founder of ILAC and ILAC International College. “The scholarship fund creates opportunities for deserving young women who would otherwise not have the chance to study in Canada.”

There are 10 scholarships available and each scholarship is valued at $10,000 for one academic year. ILAC partner agencies in Turkey will lead the selection process and the chosen scholars will begin their studies in September 2019 or January 2020.

“This initiative supports our agents and students in Turkey who have helped put ILAC on the map,” says Kolber. “It is a privilege to give back to one of our biggest and most dynamic markets.”

Turkish students have been coming to ILAC since 1997, and every year almost 1.000 Turkish students study English at ILAC before continuing on to higher education institutions across Canada. ILAC has over 80 university and college partners that offer direct pathways for Turkish students.
