GG creates award to honour Will and Kate

Preference to those studying Monarchy or Aboriginals

Governor General David Johnston and his wife Sharon have created a one-time $5,000 scholarship at the University of Waterloo to honour the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate.

The recipient will be chosen by officials at the University of Waterloo, but preference will be given to a student who is pursuing studies related to the British Monarchy or Canada’s Aboriginal peoples. They will also need to have volunteered and shown leadership to be considered.

David Johnston was president of the University of Waterloo from 1999 until 2010. The Johnstons attended William and Kate’s wedding on April 29.
