The Paddy O’Rourke Poetry Scholarship was established in 2018 to recognize and encourage young Saskatchewan poets. It is named in honour of Patrick (Paddy) O’Rourke, a teacher, literary editor, mentor and prominent friend of Saskatoon’s and Saskatchewan’s arts community.

The Scholarship is coordinated by Saskatchewan’s first Poet Laureate Glen Sorestad as Chair, Sonia Sorestad, and Ray and Debbie Penner.
The Paddy O’Rourke Poetry Scholarship will be awarded annually, at the discretion of the Scholarship judges and administrators. The amount awarded is determined in part by donor support.

Up to two scholarships of $1,500 are available for French-Second-Language (FSL) students entering their first year of a post-secondary program in the French language.
Dr. Mary Joyce Booth was a devoted and enthusiastic educator, well known in Canadian Parents for French circles for many years before her death on March 22, 2007. She was passionate about promoting French-Second-Language (FSL) education. Dr. Booth was a professor of French in the College of Education, Department of Curriculum Studies, at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. She endlessly supported opportunities for young FSL students. She also provided moral, professional, personal, and financial assistance to all levels of Canadian Parents for French over the years.
