In 2009 the Board of Governors of the Law Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador contributed $50,000 to the Newfoundland and Labrador Scholarship in Law Fund at Dalhousie University. The Scholarship was established on the 125th Anniversary of Dalhousie Law School in 2008 in recognition of its strong relationship with this Province. This one-time contribution to this scholarship endowment fund, created by donations from Dalhousie Law alumni and others, will provide one or more renewable scholarships, which in time will be in the amount of $10,000 or greater as further donations are made, to students from Newfoundland and Labrador who have demonstrated academic excellence. In early 2012, the Scholarship was renamed The Hon. John C. Crosbie Weldon Tradition Scholarship in Law and a demonstration of ‘selfless public service’ was added to the criteria.
