Lorraine Allison scholarships
< 12 months
The Lorraine Allison Memorial Scholarship honours the memory of a remarkable woman who was a biologist, environmental advocate and Arctic scholar. When she died of cancer in 1987, Lorraine Allison had already accomplished much in so many areas: wilderness field work, ranching in rural Alberta, advocacy at environmental hearings and a family that was immensely important in her life. Lorraine loved the natural world and she loved the North. We at the Arctic Institute are privileged to administer a program that allows young Northern scholars to benefit from her legacy.
