The Ron Larkin Educational Fund was established in 2008 in honour of ex OCH CEO Ron Larkin. Having served for many years in the field of education, Mr. Larkin believes strongly in the principle of equal opportunity to education. Since 2008, 80 OCH tenants have received the $1,000 scholarship. The recipients are selected based on their community engagement, life experience and current educational enrollment status.
Seeing as it is only available to residents of Ottawa Community Housing, the Ron Larkin scholarships directly impacts the rate of participation of post-secondary education in our communities. If you would like to help our tenants achieve their educational goals, donate today!
