Insolvency Institute of Canada
Prize in Insolvency Studies

The Insolvency Institute of Canada (IIC) is launching a new scholarship program to students with the top grade in the bankruptcy, restructuring or insolvency law course at faculties of law across Canada. The Insolvency Institute of Canada Prize in Insolvency Studies will be available for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The top students in the course will receive a $1,000 prize along with invaluable networking opportunities with the top practitioners in Canada. In addition, both the student winners and their universities will be recognized. This includes:

  • An invitation extended for winners to attend an IIC Regional Membership and Professional Development event, based on geographic location, where they will be recognized for their achievement.

  • Student and university recognition on a dedicated page of the IIC website.

  • Recognition at the IIC Annual Conference & Meeting.

The IIC is looking to work closely with the universities, law faculty deans, and course professors to promote the scholarship and encourage student participation to build awareness of the insolvency and restructuring profession in Canada and the role of the IIC. To that end, the IIC will be reaching out to the designated universities for assistance in identifying these key contacts.
