An educator and advocate, Charmaine Letourneau received the Order of Canada in 2001 in recognition of her work in improving the quality of life for Deaf people.
The Charmaine Letourneau Fund was established to support post-secondary education for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Albertans. Ongoing donations from many individual contributors and community organizations continue to support the fund and honour a community leader.
The Charmaine Letourneau Scholarship is awarded each year to a Deaf or Hard of Hearing person who will attend an academic or training program at a qualified institution. In 2007, one award of $1,500 was provided, but number and value of awards may vary.
Priority is given to individuals who demonstrate involvement in Deaf and Hard of Hearing organizations, school or community leadership, commitment to and diligence in studies, and likelihood the program of study will lead to employment or further educational opportunities.
