March 30, 2021 – CBC PEI: The pandemic made for a difficult first year of law school for Keesha Ryan of Charlottetown, but it is ending on a high note with news she has been awarded a prestigious scholarship.
Ryan is one of six recipients of a new scholarship sponsored by Scotiabank for law students intending to support and advocate for anti-racism in law. The scholarship is valued at $30,000.
“I was quite shocked when I first got the call. I received a phone call from the dean of law, then shortly after he wants to jump on a meeting,” said Ryan, who is studying at Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University.
“I knew it was around the time when they were announcing the winner, and so I was kind of holding my breath.”
