Established in recognition of Gordon S. Lang, founder of CCL Industries. The Lang Doctoral Entrance Scholarships were established in 2019 as part of a transformative $21 million gift by Stu and Kim Lang to name the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics in honour of Stu’s father. These scholarships are one of the most prestigious graduate entrance awards offered in the Lang school. We seek to attract scholars with potential to attain a high level of academic achievement and to make significant research contributions. Recipients of Lang Doctoral Entrance Scholarships will be considered members of the Lang Community of Scholars, and as such, will be invited to participate in various activities and represent the Lang School at internal and external events. The awards committee will evaluate candidates based on the following criteria: Doctoral (PhD) candidates will be evaluated based on: (i) sustained, outstanding academic achievement (including academic awards); (ii) evidence of strong research skills (including publication record if appropriate for the discipline); (iii) evidence of leadership within and/or beyond the academic community (including volunteer service); (iv) excellent potential for research: and (v) relevance of proposed research and personal motivation in context of the Lang School of Business and Economics’ vision “to be recognized locally and globally for our commitment to developing future leaders for a more sustainable world.” Apply by February 1 for the following September entry to the Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Studies, Lang School of Business and Economics, with a curriculum vitae; a one-page personal statement; transcripts; and two letters of reference.
