The criteria for the selection of the recipients of the annual scholarship are as follows:
The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating student of the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan or to a resident practicing member of the Law Society of Saskatchewan for the pursuit of graduate studies in criminal law at a recognized institution. The recipient will be selected on the basis of academic record and research potential, service to the practice of law in Saskatchewan, and such other guidelines as from time to time may be determined appropriate by the committee.
The value of the scholarship to be awarded in 2024 has not yet been finally determined, but the maximum amount available is expected to be $10,000. Up to two scholarships may be awarded in any one year. The deadline date for receipt of applications is May 3, 2024 and a decision will be made by the end of June 2024.
