Home Awards & Scholarships ARPA Scholarships Halladay Memorial Scholarship
The Halladay Memorial Scholarship recognizes a student enrolled in any undergraduate program related to recreation and parks, who has contributed to recreation and/or parks services through volunteer activities, work experience, studies and involvement in the Alberta Recreation & Parks Association.
This scholarship has a value of $1000 and is given in memory of Jacqueline Diane Halladay, 1959-1981, to honour “one who gave so much.” Jacqui served on ARPA’s Board of Directors from 1979-1980 and was instrumental in initiating the Student Standing Committee.
Eligible students must be active members of the Alberta Recreation & Parks Association and registered full-time in any year of a post secondary program related to recreation or parks.
If the recipient is a graduating student, the scholarship portion of the Award will be paid upon evidence of graduation. If the recipient is a continuing student, the scholarship funds will be paid on evidence of continuing full-time registration in the program of study.
Applications for 2023 are now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations!
