The Helen LeFrank Award
The Helen LeFrank Scholarship Fund was created in honour of Helen LeFrank. Helen was a former General Manager who had served with the Elgin Business Resource Centre from 1999 to 2007. Helen was a strong supporter of youth in our community and especially the promotion of youth entrepreneurship. Since Helen’s passing on January 9, 2016, the Elgin Business Resource Centre remains dedicated to ensuring that her vision to support youth entrepreneurship continues.
This Scholarship is a Donor Advised Fund under the stewardship of the Elgin-St. Thomas Community Foundation. Deadline to apply for this scholarship is May 15th of each year. The application and funding criteria may be found on the Elgin-St. Thomas Community Foundation website (http://www.escf.ca/grants/scholarships).
Encouraging youth to complete their education, return to their communities to start & participate in small businesses as well as in promoting community economic development is the foundation for this scholarship.
