An exceptional international student from a country in Africa is selected each year to receive the Richard J. Van Loon Scholarship, which has a value of $5,000 for the academic year 2022-2023 and is presented to that student.
In 2005, friends, relatives, and coworkers of Richard J. Van Loon, who served as the 10th President of Carleton University, donated the prize with their generosity.
