2021 Employee Child Scholarship Recipients Announced


J.D. Irving, Limited has announced this year’s recipients of the J.D. Irving, Limited Employee Child Scholarships. 

Each year, the company's various business divisions award scholarships to students pursuing post-secondary education whose parents are part of the JDI team.  This year, that means we are investing more than $116,000 in the education of our employees' children, and in the future of the regions where we operate.  

These students are either entering or returning full-time to post-secondary institutions this fall. Recipients represent 36 universities, colleges, and training institutes across Canada and the U.S..

"We have proudly been supporting the employee child scholarship program for a long time. We have outstanding employees and finding ways to encourage their families' investment in education is important to us," says Linda Speedy, Vice President of Human Resources. "With more than 2,500 student roles to fill in the next three years (2021-2023), employee child scholarships are a wonderful opportunity to engage with the next generation of leaders. We are excited to see the potential of these inspiring students."

We would like to wish these students, and everyone returning to the classroom, a happy and healthy school year.
