Scholarships make a difference

Scholarship recipient, Jadine Ngan (HBA ’23)

Receiving the David King Memorial Scholarship for Excellence in Writing relieved some of the financial pressure generated by my tuition. That allowed me to focus more closely on my studies, as well as my freelance journalism career: I’m now published in magazines like The Walrus and Toronto Life. I’m grateful for the generosity of donors who enable awards like these — they make such a difference to the students who receive them.

Jadine will graduate in 2023 with a double major in sociology and diaspora and transnational studies, and a minor in the Writing & Rhetoric Program.

Innis College scholarships and awards would not be possible without the generosity of our dedicated donors, who include faculty, staff, alumni and their families, and friends of the College.
