The Julie O’Rourke Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Julie by her parents following a three-year battle with cancer. The award is valued at $1000 and intended to offset expenses for a student pursuing post-secondary studies in the fine arts.

Julie loved life and could make you love yours. She was a scholar and an artist, provided deep insight into any challenge of the heart, and brought a spirit of inclusivity to everything she did. Her love of life, people, ideas, and adventure stayed strong throughout her illness and her time working at Virtual High School.

Applications for the Julie O’Rourke Memorial Scholarship must be submitted by August 1. Visit the Awards page to learn more about Julie and the application process.
