About the Scholarship

The Pradeep Khare Memorial Scholarship was established in 2016 by Pradeep’s family.  It is awarded in memory of Pradeep, an immigrant to Canada in 1972, who worked hard to establish a fulfilling life in Canada, give back to the community, and move up to senior positions within the Canadian government.


In memory of Pradeep, this scholarship is awarded to a student who demonstrates academic excellence, drive, leadership, self-reflection, and a desire to use their privileged education in order to give back to their community, and who has financial need.


This scholarship is distributed through IC-IMPACTS, an organization dedicated to furthering research collaboration between India and Canada and infrastructure development in India.  Pradeep served on the Board and was dedicated to seeing this organization further its cause.
