O’Brien / Kehoe Memorial Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

The O’Brien / Kehoe Memorial Scholarship was created in 2006 by Gail and Allan O’Brien. Al is a graduate of the Common Law Class of 1973. Gail and Al had a dual purpose for establishing this endowment fund. First, they wish to express their thanks for the excellent legal education received at the Faculty of Law, Common Law Section. Secondly, each of them wanted to pay tribute to their parents, Roderick and Donalda O’Brien and Monica and Vincent Kehoe, whose commitment to the value of hard work, to expanding one’s horizons through education and dedication to community responsibilities, exemplified how life ought to be lived. The donors thank the Government of Ontario who helped create this fund through its generous matching contributions.

PURPOSE OF FUND

To provide financial support to students in the English-language JD program of the Faculty of Law, Common Law Section whose education would otherwise be compromised.
