|Description:||Open to all full-time students who will be returning to their 3rd year of study and demonstrate entrepreneurial activities on PEI. Applicants must have achieved a 75% average in their first two years of study.|
|Background:||This scholarship program was established at the University of Prince Edward Island with a very generous donation by Marjorie MacLauchlan and family to honour the memory of Harry W. MacLauchlan (1926-2002), who combined entrepreneurial initiative, work ethic, business judgment and people skills, with a deep commitment to his family, community and province. These renewable scholarships are intended to encourage and support future generations of entrepreneurial and community leaders on Prince Edward Island. From early beginnings on the family farm in Stanhope, Harry MacLauchlan became an entrepreneurial leader in various sectors of the PEI economy. There are well-known tales of MacLauchlan's first business endeavours selling ducks and berries by the age of ten, later moving on to opening a general store and buying and shipping lobsters by the age of twenty. His subsequent ventures included pulpwood, heavy construction, tourism, golf, cable television, oil and gas distribution, and real estate. MacLauchlan's co mmunity involvements touched on many aspects of Island life, including sports, health care, politics, local community improvement and heritage, as well as fundraising for UPEI and other causes.|
