Harry Singh knows what it means to support students. The Seneca professor says his passion is helping students succeed. That’s why he established a new financial award to give students a helping hand.
The new award supports students in Seneca’s Paralegal, Law Clerk and Office Administration – Legal programs who are involved in volunteering and demonstrate financial need. Presented annually, the award recipient will be recommended by faculty and will receive $2,500 over five years.
The award was established through Indigoblue Group of Companies, an innovative provider of alternative investments, mortgage solutions and legal services, where Mr. Singh is the President and CEO.
“I saw first-hand how much it means to students to have financial support,” he said. “It means they don’t have to work that extra job to cover tuition. It means more family and study time.”
Currently, more than 80 per cent of Seneca students work part time while attending school and 10 per cent work full-time hours. Many students are also caring for dependents such as children, spouses and aging parents.
Mr. Singh has been a professor at Seneca for the past decade, teaching the Mortgage Agent course. He says he believes in supporting students to become the best that they can be, while helping them remove as many barriers as possible so “they can focus on what really matters.”
