The Bill Mason Memorial Scholarship Fund is a tribute to the late Bill Mason, a Canadian recognized both nationally and internationally as an avid canoeist, environmentalist, filmmaker, photographer, artist and public speaker.
Established by Paddle Canada in 1990, with the permission and input of the Mason Family, the scholarship is intended to incorporate some of the characteristics that made Bill Mason unique and to help ensure that the memory, spirit and ideals that he represented are kept fresh in the minds of Canadians.
Paddle Canada is proud to award this annual scholarship of $1,000 to assist with the education of tomorrow's environmental stewards – those people who help make a difference in the kind of world we live in today and pass on to future generations.
