Arnold Smith Royal Commonwealth Society Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

The Royal Commonwealth Society of Canada, Ottawa Chapter created this scholarship in honour of Arnold Smith, the first ever Secretary-General of the Commonwealth and a great Canadian.

The Society believes that the Commonwealth is an important influence for good in the world. The value of this community, comprising more than 50 countries, representative of all geographic regions of the world and containing almost one third of the world's population, lies in its great diversity of races, cultures, creeds, and political beliefs, as well as in its ability to communicate and act constructively for peaceful ends.
