TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR AN ENDOWED FUND

NAME OF ENDOWED FUND

Annemarie Desloges Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

This scholarship was created to celebrate and honour the memory of Annemarie Desloges, a Canadian diplomat who was brutally assassinated on September 21, 2013 in a terrorist attack in Nairobi, Kenya. She was 29 years old and an employee of Citizenship and Immigration Canada, on secondment to Canada Border Services. Annemarie would have given the shirt off her back for others. It’s fitting that she can continue to help people.
