New Board of Governors’ Leadership Award


From the Board of Governors’ Meeting - Friday, November 30, 2007

The Board approved a new Board of Governors’ Leadership Award to recognize academic excellence and provide additional assistance to students in financial need.

The new Award will be offered in addition to the existing Board of Governors’ Leadership Scholarship, which has been in existence for more than 10 years and has grown to be one of Trent’s most prestigious scholarships worth $18,000.

Current, former and honorary Board members will be the main contributors to the Award and contributions will be eligible for the matched gift dollars offered though the Ontario Trust for Student Support (OTSS) program.

The Board of Governors’ Leadership Award will be valued at $1,000 and will be given out each January.
