Dana Scholarship

Welcome to TBC Dana Scholarship 50th Anniversary Celebration!

We are so happy and proud to be celebrating our 50th Anniversary and would like to share this special occasion with you, your family and friends.

There are two components. One, is the RSVP itself. If you plan to attend this celebration please stay on this page and fill in the details below.

Secondly, we would like to invite all past recipients to fill in a quick questionnaire (I promise it will only take a few minutes). Even if you don’t plan to attend the celebration we are hoping you have a few minutes to do this. The purpose of the questionnaire is to get an update on what you are doing today.  We also want to compile a 50th Anniversary Memory Book for our Temple, so if you can spare a few moments please go to the Questionnaire tab and fill in the details.

What is the TBC Dana Scholarship?

In the early 1960s, the Toronto Buddhist Church began fundraising to create a scholarship, with the purpose of encouraging and recognizing followers of Jodo Shinshu Buddhism who have demonstrated their commitment to the faith and who strive for academic excellence.

The first Toronto Buddhist Church Dana Scholarship was awarded in 1967.

To commemorate this special occasion, we are inviting the over 100 scholarship recipients to a special service and reception on Sunday, September 24, 2017.

The festivities commence at 11:00 am at the Toronto Buddhist Church.

Please RSVP by August 8th, 2017.
