SLC supports Project Hero


St. Lawrence College is joining colleges and universities from across Canada in support of Project Hero, a scholarship program created for the families of fallen Canadian soldiers.

The new award will be available to one St. Lawrence College applicant each year beginning September 2010. It will cover the cost of six semesters of tuition for a full-time program.
Candidates must be under 26 years of age and entering the first year of any diploma program to be eligible.

“We are honored to join other Canadian postsecondary schools in offering this remarkable scholarship,” said Chris Whitaker, president and CEO of St. Lawrence College. “To offer
access to education for children of our fallen soldiers is one way we can attempt to give back to those who gave their lives for our freedoms.”

"Project Hero is thrilled that St. Lawrence College is agreeing to support these families of fallen soldiers," stated Kevin Reed, Managing Director of Project Hero. "St Lawrence College
is a Canadian institution and their support will be heard right across the country".

Project Hero aims to provide financial support to the children of soldiers who have been killed in any combat or peace-keeping situation in the world, including Afghanistan, through
educational scholarships. Since 2002, more than 140 Canadian servicemen and women, the parents of more than 110 children, have been killed while serving their country.
