June Callwood Harmony Scholarships
Ten scholarships in memory of June Callwood are awarded each year to graduating high school students from across Canada who will be attending university or college. These students are highly active in combating racism and discrimination in their schools and communities by building on the values of harmony and equity. Scholarships are awarded annually at our Harmony Award Gala.
June Callwood Harmony Scholarships recognize the outstanding achievements of youth in promoting harmony and diversity across Canada. Our scholarships aim to recognize young leaders who have taken action to challenge discrimination and inequity in their communities.
