TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR AN ENDOWED FUND

 

NAME OF ENDOWED FUND (OSOTF[1])

 

Jill Brown Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

The Faculty of Administration (now the Telfer School of Management) created this fund with revenues from the 1996 Annual Golf Tournament, in memory of Jill Brown who passed away in 1995. With her husband Chuck, Mrs. Brown founded the first golf equipment store in 1969.

Exchange programs give students a unique chance to enhance their academic and professional training in a different environment, and at the same time discover another country and culture, as well as other customs.

The Telfer School of Management appreciates the matching contribution of the Alumni Association of the University of Ottawa and the Government of Ontario through its Ontario Student Opportunity Trust Fund program.

 

PURPOSE OF FUND

To provide financial assistance to help offset expenses for students of the Telfer School of Management participating in virtual activities as part of their program of study, such as a virtual academic exchange, internship or conference.
