Remembrance Scholarship at Georgian College

On January 8, 2020, a Ukrainian airliner crashed near Tehran, Iran. Victims of the crash included 57 Canadians. Among the victims, 34 people were employed at or studying in universities and colleges in Ontario. In remembrance of the victims and to commemorate the talent that has been lost, Ontario has provided select publicly-assisted postsecondary institutions with funding for dedicated scholarships for the 2020-2021 academic year.

The scholarship is open to students who are beyond their first semester in any diploma or degree program at Georgian College who have demonstrated academic achievement (minimum 75% GPA), financial need and exceptional community involvement.
