DR. EZRA NESBETH SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION LAUNCHED – DONOR GIVES OVER $100,000 TO SCHOLARSHIPS
Toronto, ON Dr. Ezra Nesbeth has recently launched the Dr. Ezra Nesbeth Scholarship Foundation which will award annual scholarships to African-Caribbean-Canadian youth. The Foundation was established in an effort to
increase the educational opportunities for Afro-Caribbean Canadian youth. It
offers financial assistance to help offset the increasing cost of post-secondary education. The scholarships will be awarded annually to gifted students who demonstrate a financial need.
The Dr. Ezra Nesbeth scholarships are being facilitated through the Jamaican Canadian Association (JCA) Scholarship Awards Program, an organization to which Dr. Nesbeth has been contributing to and supporting for over 25 years. After donating $25,000 to the JCA in 2003 towards the establishment of the Dr. Ezra Nesbeth Scholarship, Dr. Nesbeth formed the Foundation as a separate entity that would focus specifically on the education of Afro-Caribbean Canadian youth. He has since contributed in excess of
$100,000.00 to this cause. A total of $25, 000 will be available from the Foundation in 2011, for 5 – 10 additional scholarships through the JCA Scholarship Awards program.
