About the Eamonn O’Loghlin Scholarship Fund
Established in 2013 in memory of the CNE’s then-Director of Sponsorship & Partnerships who passed away suddenly that year, the Eamonn O’Loghlin Scholarship Fund bestows grants to assist outstanding post-secondary students as they pursue their studies. Students employed by the Canadian National Exhibition or Exhibition Place, who work at the annual CNE, are eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients exemplify the values of the CNE Foundation and honour Eamonn O’Loghlin’s indomitable spirit, his love for Canada, and his commitment to youth, community service and the CNE.
2023 Scholarship Recipients
The Canadian National Exhibition Foundation was pleased to return in 2023 with two post-secondary scholarships to be awarded through our Eamonn O’Loghlin Scholarship Fund.
True to form, the field of applicants was impressive, highlighting the talent and dedication present among many of the youth employed by the CNE each summer. Following a comprehensive review, two candidates emerged as the successful recipients: Ava Chau, CNE HorseCapades Attendant, Markham, ON, and Ayah Najarbashi, CNE Lost and Found Attendant, Toronto, ON.
Our 2023 Eamonn O’Loghlin Scholarship recipients not only exemplify the values of the CNE Foundation, but also demonstrate values that we feel would have been important to the Fund’s namesake as well, both academically and in terms of their community work and leadership.
Each recipient has been awarded $1,500 to assist with costs related to a post-secondary program, such as tuition, course fees or course books.
Thank you to all seasonal CNE employees who submitted applications and congratulations to our successful scholarship recipients.
