Jack Matthews Fellowship

The Jack Matthews Fellowship is named in honour of the founding Director of the Trent International Program, who also founded Pearson United World College in British Columbia, the Canadian Canoe Museum, and was a Headmaster of Lakefield College School. Each year, a fellow is chosen who embodies the value of those institutions, and the legendary spirit of Canadian global citizenship that was Jack Matthews' vision.
