Chelsea Club Scholarship (OTSS) (722220102294)



Chelsea Club Scholarship


The formal opening of the Chelsea Club took place at four o'clock on Wednesday, April 15th, 1926. "The charter membership closed at 227 members and no less than 200 charter members were present at the inauguration. Her Excellency the Lady Byng of Vimy, wife of the Governor General, was the guest of honour. Lady Borden, Lady Perley and Mrs. Charles Stewart presided at the tea table." In 2010, 84 years later, the Chelsea Club has closed its doors, both literally and figuratively. After struggling for many years to maintain their house at 235 Metcalfe on account of the weight and cost of such an old building being too much to be sustained, it has decided to put an end to this long tradition. In a final act of generosity, the Chelsea Club has donated part of their assets to create this scholarship in order to financially assist University of Ottawa students in perpetuity.The donors wish to thank the Government of Ontario who helped create this fund through their generous matching contribution.


To offer financial assistance to undergraduate students at the University of Ottawa.
