Please donate to the LIFE Institute Student Award

What is the LIFE Institute Student Award?
(formerly known as the LIFE Institute Jack Brown Award)

LIFE enjoys a strong partnership with the G. Raymond Chang School of Education and Ryerson University. We appreciate this relationship, and want to show our commitment to Ryerson and its students. One way we do this is through the LIFE Institute Student Awards. Each year, The LIFE Institute presents awards of $1,000 each to deserving, full-time Ryerson students; in the autumn, LIFE also gives one or more $1,000 awards to a student in Continuing Education. To qualify for this award, each individual must be in financial need, and demonstrate an involvement in studies or activities which enhance the quality of life for seniors.
