A.-Craig-Lovgren Memorial Scholarship (OSOTF) (742220100975)

TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR AN ENDOWED FUND

NAME OF ENDOWED FUND (OSOTF [1] )

A. Craig Lövgren Memorial Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

This fund has been established in memory of A. Craig Lövgren by his colleagues and friends.

Craig left a lasting impression on all who knew him, as a law student at the University of Toronto, a legislative drafter at the Department of Justice, a chorister at St.John the Evangelist Anglican Church and an active member of the Ottawa gay community with his partner, Chris Landry.

Even when Craig could muster only one hour a day to work, he devoted it to his abiding love of language and legislation. A visitor expecting a scene of medical struggle and despair would more likely be met with a discussion of Boileau’s theory of rhetoric and a request for more books.

This intellectual thirst and dedication is what we want to honour in Craig. Those of us who knew and loved him want to nurture this and we have established the scholarship to this end.

The founders of the fund wish to thank the Government of Ontario who helped create this fund through their generous matching contribution.

PURPOSE OF FUND

Provide financial assistance to a student in an undergraduate program in Common Law or in a graduate program in Law who demonstrates financial need.
