NAME OF ENDOWED FUND (OTSS [1] )

Tsampalieros Family Entrance Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

This scholarship was created by Gabriel Tsampalieros, graduate of the Common Law Class of 1973, in memory of his father, Theodosios Tsampalieros (1911-1974). Theodosios Tsampalieros left his village on Rhodes Island, Greece, in 1951 to move to Montreal. He was an entrepreneur in the truest sense. He was a risk taker. He took a risk on vision. He loved this country and he saw the opportunities it offered to those who came to Canada. This scholarship was established in order to commemorate his father’s entrepreneurial spirit.

The donor thanks the Government of Ontario who helped create this fund through its generous matching contributions.

PURPOSE OF FUND

To provide financial support to qualified students entering the first year of the JD Program at the Faculty of Law, Common Law Section of the University of Ottawa. In particular, this scholarship is intended to assist students who, without a scholarship of this magnitude, might be precluded altogether from attending law school.
