Tanya howe damsgaard Scholarship
The Tanya Howe Damsgaard Memorial Scholarship was established by the family and friends of Tanya Howe Damsgaard after her brief battle with cancer. Tanya was a passionate individual that embodied education and community service. Tanya grew up on a mixed family farm south of Moose Jaw spending her youth actively enrolled in 4-H and the Charolais breed. Tanya pursued a career in pharmacy through the University of Saskatchewan and practiced in Manitoba until her passing. Tanya was a strong advocate for education and preventive patient care. Tanya’s commitment to excellence was recognized by her employer when she earned the Pharmacist of the Year Award at London Drugs in 2009. This scholarship is intended to encourage youth with a agriculture background to pursue careers in science and maintain a strong culture of community of service.
This is a $1000 annual scholarship, awarded to students who have completed at least one year of post secondary education in agriculture, pharmacy, science or health sciences at a Canadian college or university. Selection criteria are: agriculture background, community service and academic performance.
