social activist, a CCBR community researcher and an advocate for
the rights of people with mental health and other life struggles.
The fund contributes to the cost of post-secondary education for
a student pursuing social studies in a variety of disciplines.
Awards will be given yearly to one or two students in need of financial assistance. Each award will be for $1000.
