RJ3 Bursary

Description
The RJ3 Memorial Bursary was created through the generous support of the friends and family of Rav Johal. The RJ3 bursary will be given to a York University student athlete with preference given to a member of the basketball program who meets the criteria for eligibility under the current Ontario University Athletics/Canadian Interuniversity Sport requirements for athletics awards and someone who has made a contribution to the York community. Rav Johal was a strong man who used his healthy vision of the world to improve the lives of everyone around him. After two years of debilitating treatments, efforts to cure him of cancer proved futile, and Rav passed away on November 19, 2012. In his amazing memory we have decided to honor him with a yearly scholarship at York University, representing the values that meant so much to him.
