First Foundation Trustee Award

In 2008, our Board of Trustees introduced 'the First Foundation Trustee Award' to mark our 10-year anniversary.

This annual award which includes a cheque for $1,000 is intended "to recognise a graduating First Foundation Scholar for his or her overall excellence and outstanding contribution to First Foundation."

In selecting this year's recipient, the panel, consisting of Executive Team members and past and present Trustees, considered a range of criteria including academic performance, work performance, attitude, communication, and overall involvement in First Foundation and the wider community. Feedback gathered through reviews and reports involving the Scholarship Partners and Mentors helps to create an overall picture of the individual Scholar's performance.
