Jamie Hubley was a shooting star. An adored son and brother.
Fierce friend. Saucy singing sensation. Forceful figure skater. And he was courageous beyond words.
But he also struggled with depression, loneliness, and bullying. Established in loving tribute of Jamie Hubley, two annual scholarships with a focus on mental health will be awarded to residents of Ottawa.
Recognizing the immense value offered by individuals with an experience of mental illness, the aim of the second Jamie Hubley Memorial Scholarship is to increase the educational opportunities for mental health consumers. This annual $2,000.00 scholarship will be used to support an individual with experience of mental illness/mental health disorder as they pursue a post-secondary education.
Selection Procedure: A Selection Committee convened by the Hubley Family will review each application and select the scholarship recipients.
