Sarah Baker Memorial Fund
Sarah Baker Memorial Fund supports important student work in the Y2Y region
Sarah Jocelyn Baker's appreciation for the natural world and ability to find solutions resonate with the aspirations and vision of the Y2Y Initiative. We are honoured to carry her spirit forward through the Sarah Baker Memorial Fund. Thanks to a gift from her extended family, the Y2Y Initiative is able to offer grants to post-secondary students pursuing environmentally related studies in Canadian institutions.
The Sarah Baker grants support student projects that advance Y2Y's conservation strategy and result in tangible benefits within the region. Besides the benefits they bring to the region and our organization, the knowledge and experience students acquire can enhance their resumes and further their careers.
Seven Sarah Baker grants have been awarded since the fund was established in 2009:
These students and their work represent a commitment to the future of the Y2Y region. We are very happy to be, with Sarah Baker, their supporters and partners in conservation of this very special place.
