This scholarship was originally established in 2009 to provide assistance to willing, industrious students from a Toronto Area Public High School who otherwise may not be able to undertake tertiary education.
In 2015, in order to honour the memory of Patricia Turner, this scholarship was renamed the John and Patricia Turner Scholarship. Patricia was a loving and caring wife, mother and grandmother who was an inspiration to all of those who were blessed with having her in their lives. She was completely selfless, incredibly maternal, wonderfully creative and believed in the importance of education. It is through this scholarship that students are given the opportunity to strive for their goals and fulfil their dreams knowing that they are supported and that someone believes in them.
Applicable to: Toronto High School Students, Enabling programs, Yapug, Open Foundation, Newstep, High Achievers.
