Doris Ferguson Memorial Bursary Awards

The Elementary Teachers of Toronto (ETT) is offering four bursaries ($100 each) to students who show leadership in the areas of social responsibility, anti-racism, equity, inclusion and/or social justice initiatives in our elementary schools.

ETT provides this award to honour the memory of Doris Ferguson, who served as a Community Liaison Officer in Toronto for many years. Her work in building positive bridges within our schools had a significant impact on students, staff and communities.

Award recipients (and up to two family members) will be invited to receive their awards and have their achievements recognized at the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (IDERD) event organized by ETT’s Anti-Racism, Equity and Social Justice committee (ARESJ). This year’s celebration will take place on: Thursday, March 24, 2022 (Details to be provided later.)

We hope the attached information package and application form will be helpful in your nomination. Applications must be received at the ETT office no later than Friday, February 04, 2022, at 4:00 p.m.
