On Nov. 6, the College of Law announced that a specific scholarship has been created for students who have claimed or are claiming refugee status in Canada and are pursuing a three-year Juris Doctor degree. The scholarship will cover the complete costs of tuition, student fees and textbooks for the duration of the three-year degree.

Eligible students can apply for the scholarship if they are accepted into the JD program for Sept. 2018, after which an appointed committee will select the recipient.

The College of Law is encouraging donors to contribute to this fund. Students in the Law Students’ Association have supported the initiative by pledging to contribute $5 towards the fund from the proceeds of every First-Year Formal ticket that is purchased.
