The Law’77 Memorial Award is awarded to students in their first or second year of studies primarily on the basis of financial need, with demonstrated involvement in student activities and academic achievement. Since its inception, 17 deserving students have benefited, and the fund has disbursed $69,150 (as at April 30, 2020).
In honour of our upcoming 45th reunion in 2022, we have made a friendly amendment to our class award in memory of classmates who have passed away. With the depletion of Government funding and the rising cost of tuition and living expenses, ensuring that quality legal education remains within reach of promising young adults regardless of their individual financial background, is increasingly important.
By focusing our efforts on achieving a high rate of class participation between now and 2022, we do hope to raise at least $100,000 of additional funding. Affordable education is essential to ensure all prospective students have access to the Queen’s education, experiences, friendships, and community. Every gift counts!
Donations of all sizes are welcome and can be made with a single payment gift or a multi-year pledge with payments spread over a maximum of 5 years. All donations are fully tax deductible.
We sincerely believe that the law program at Queen’s has provided us with wonderful opportunities in our careers. The Law 1977 Memorial Award will help provide deserving students the same opportunities we’ve enjoyed. Please help to establish a lasting class legacy that we can all be proud of.
We hope you will join us in contributing to the Law 1977 Memorial Award. Thank you for your consideration.
