Pat Walsh Memorial Scholarship

The maintenance and promotion of education has been a prime concern of the Irish Canadian Club. In order to encourage young people to pursue post secondary study, the Club established an annual scholarship to assist students with their costs. The scholarship, first awarded in 1969 to subsidize university education, was known as the Irish Canadian Club Scholarship. The funds used to finance the awards were drawn from the Feis profits. In 1981, a decision was made to add an additional award directed at community college study. In 1985 the scholarship was renamed the “Pat Walsh Memorial Scholarship” in recognition of his loyalty and dedication to furthering of the aims and objectives of the Club.
