The Giller Mantella Scholarship


High School

The Giller Mantella Scholarship, presented by Mantella Corporation, is a collaboration between the Giller Foundation and Mantella Corporation. The scholarship program’s objective is to support Black, Indigenous, and racialized students across Canada graduating high school and interested in continued education in English Literature, Writing or Creative Writing.

Three entrance scholarships, valued at $10,000 Canadian each for one year, are available to eligible Black, Indigenous and racialized students pursuing full-time postsecondary studies in English Literature, Writing or Creative Writing. Scholarships are available for bachelor’s or diploma-level programs. Of those three scholarships, one scholarship will be reserved for a student that identifies as Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit or Métis). Note: Only 35 submitted applications will be accepted for review. If 35 applications have been submitted prior to the application deadline, the portal will close regardless of the date.
