Flight 302 Legacy Award

On March 10, 2019, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed near Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, claiming the lives of all 157 people aboard. Victims represented 35 nationalities, including 18 Canadian citizens, as well as permanent residents and others with ties to Canada. The flight was en route to Nairobi, where many of the passengers were scheduled to take part in the United Nations environmental conference.

The Flight 302 Legacy Award honours the memory the victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in a visible and meaningful way by supporting students enrolled in programs aligned with the interests and passions of the victims for environmental and humanitarian causes. The scholarship supports Canadian and international students who are enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at a Canadian educational institution.
