LEE AWARDS

The program is currently Open

LEE AWARDS Bursary Program for Canadian Aboriginal High School Students in Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12.

The Lee Awards program for Aboriginal high

school students was established by the children

of the late Louise and Walter Lee. Born just after

1900, both Louise and Walter taught in Ontario

high schools and practiced a quiet generosity.

They believed that all human beings belong to

one family.

In 1989, their four children set up the Lee

Awards for Aboriginal students both to honour

their parents and to assist Aboriginal students.

Statistics show that almost 44% of Aboriginal

Canadians have not completed high school

compared to 23% of non-Aboriginal Canadians. It

was the family’s hope that the recognition and

financial support provided by the Lee Awards

would motivate young Aboriginal students to

complete high school.

In 2010, the Lee family asked Miziwe Biik to

assume administration of the Lee Awards

Program.

Recipients of the Lee Awards are selected based

on a demonstrated commitment to school and

the community.
