R.A. LeClair Scholarship
This scholarship was established in 1983 by the family of Raymond A. LeClair, who served as Manager of the Municipality of Coquitlam from 1967 to 1982. The Coquitlam Foundation accepted the administration of the fund in October 1993.
The successful applicant(s) must be resident in the City of Coquitlam, show a financial need for post-secondary support, and have a strong academic record in secondary school studies.
The scholarship is given annually to a deserving individual or individuals planning to pursue a career in the public service with priority given to those who pursue a career in public administration.
James G Stewart Scholarship
In May of 2012, as directed by a very generous testamentary gift made by long-time Coquitlam resident James Gordon Stewart, the Coquitlam Foundation established a new scholarship fund. The scholarship is given annually to a deserving student(s) residing in the Tri-Cities Coquitlam and attending Simon Fraser University.
Only one scholarship will be awarded per student. However, students may continue to apply each year of their studies if they have not yet been granted an award.
Note: Scholarships must be claimed within three years of the date of award or be forfeited. The application of this time limit is subject to the Foundation's consideration of any extenuating circumstances that may prevent the recipient's claim within the time period.
