Seeking Two Convocation Awards Nominations
The Psychology Department is Seeking Nominations for Two Convocation Awards.
Reginald H. Brown Law Scholarship
The Reginald H. Brown Q.C. Memorial Scholarship is established at Memorial University of Newfoundland in memory of Reginald H. Brown, K. St. J., Q.C., through generous lead donations by Pamela Brown and Reg’s colleagues at Cox & Palmer. Described as “a lawyer’s lawyer”, Reg Brown was a loyal friend and colleague who combined a very challenging and successful litigation practice with the leadership of his law firm as managing partner of Cox & Palmer, an Atlantic Canadian law firm established only two weeks before his death in early 2007. Reg balanced his demanding professional life and leadership in service of his profession and the community with the philosophy that family came first. The Reginald H. Brown Q.C. Memorial Scholarship is to be awarded at convocation to a student graduating from any area of study and accepted at law school. Selection will be made on the basis of academic excellence (with a minimum of scholarship standing) and demonstrated leadership qualities as epitomized by Reg in charitable, athletic, artistic or political endeavours, whether in student life or in the community at large. The scholarship will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards.
If you are a psychology or behavioural neuroscience student and would like to be considered for this award please e-mail Christina Thorpe (firstname.lastname@example.org) your nomination package. This must include your resume, a 1-page summary of your extracurricular activities during your time at memorial and proof of your acceptance to law school. All of these documents should be included as one pdf document. Deadline: 5:00 pm, April 25, 2018
