Peter Munk Young Scholars Program in Montenegro


The Peter Munk Canada-Montenegro Initiative Fund is pleased to announce the
award of the Peter Munk Young Scholar Fellowships in Montenegro for the
2007/2008 school year. The purpose of the fellowship program is to provide
financial support and public recognition to students who have demonstrated
academic excellence. Also, the Fellowship is designed to help students who
experience financial challenges in obtaining higher education. The Fellowship is
in the amount of 1000 Euro per year. It will be granted to those students who
fulfill the below outlined requirements and pursue any level of post- secondary
education in Southeastern Europe. The fellowship is renewable based on
maintaining academic excellence in University-level studies.

The program is administered in partnership with the Munk Centre for
International Studies at the University of Toronto.

                                 PETER MUNK

                                   Chairman
                           Barrick Gold Corporation

Peter Munk is the Founder and Chairman of the Board of Barrick Gold
Corporation, a leading international gold mining company with a portfolio of high-
quality operating mines and development projects in the United States, Canada,
Australia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Tanzania, South Africa, Papua New Guinea
and the Dominican Republic.

Born in Hungary, Mr. Munk immigrated to Canada in 1948 and graduated from
the University of Toronto in 1952 with a Bachelor of Scienc e in Electrical
Engineering. In the decades that followed he built a business empire. Today he is
a well-known Canadian business leader and respected as the driving force
behind several enterprises with international scope that have achieved
outstanding performances. He has known both success and failure during the
course of his career and has embraced the lessons of both.

A dedicated philanthropist, Mr. Munk supports many charitable causes. Through
The Peter Munk Charitable Foundation he has made significant donations to
establish a leading Centre for International Studies at the University of Toronto,
the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre in Toronto, and the Centre for Research,
Innovation and Technology at Technion University in Israel.

Mr. Munk is the recipient of many public honours, including Officer of the Order of
Canada (Canada’s highest honour for a private citizen), The Woodrow Wilson
Award for Corporate Citizenship and Canadian International Executive of the
Year.

Peter Munk believes in the capacity of the individual to achieve success in life
that is meaningful to themselves and of benefit to others. He has said: “You
have to be courageous; you have to learn to take advantage of change. Be non-
conventional; don’t fritter your energies—be focused; remember to share. Most
important, use the biggest weapon of all weapons, the least appreciated yet the
most important tool for success, and this is moral integrity; and don’t be afraid to
dream and don’t be afraid to dream big.”
