Helena Orton Memorial Scholarship


The Helena Orton Memorial Scholarship honours the life and work of Helena Orton, whose tragic death in 1997 cut short a distinguished career dedicated to using law as a tool to pursue equality for women, especially women in the workplace.

This scholarship is available to a student undertaking either full-time or part-time thesis graduate studies, at Osgoode Hall Law School or York University School of Women’s Studies, whose graduate work will explore relationships between law and social equality. Preference will be given to students committed to studying workplace issues to benefit women. Students will be evaluated on the basis of academic achievement, and demonstrated commitment to equality issues.
