LORAN'S 2019 GOAL: To surpass last year's target of 620,000 donated Aeroplan Miles.

The Loran Scholars Foundation is a national charity that works in partnership with Canadian universities, donors, and volunteers to invest in young Canadians who demonstrate character, commitment to service, and leadership potential. The foundation annually selects up to 36 young Canadian leaders and funds them to study on Canadian campuses. Loran Scholars benefit from a comprehensive enrichment program including financial support, mentorship, funding for summer internships, and additional opportunities for personal development. We look for qualities in our scholars that a transcript alone cannot show: integrity and courage to make difficult decisions, the perseverance to work towards long-term goals, the curiosity to better understand the world around them, and the drive to make positive change in their communities.

To support Loran Scholars Foundation's National Selections in Toronto we are collecting Aeroplan Miles through our Fly a Finalist Campaign.

From more than 5,000 candidates, 88 finalists will travel from across Canada to attend National Selections in Toronto on January 31 and February 1. Finalists will participate in a once-in-a-lifetime weekend of enriching workshops and peer-to-peer learning, and have the opportunity to be selected for the Loran Award.

The trip to Nationals marks the start of a Loran finalist’s journey, and for 36 young people, it is the start of a lifelong journey as a Loran Scholar.

Last year we were able to raise an impressive 620,000 Aeroplan Miles and in 2019 we are aiming to surpass this goal. With your help, we are well poised to do that.

By donating your Aeroplan Miles before December 31, 2019, you can help give them this chance.

25,000 miles is enough for one finalist's round-trip ticket from anywhere in Canada. As we are able to pool miles, any donation of 1,000 points or more is greatly appreciated.
