Region 9-Harvey Creek Professional Development Scholarship
IPA Canada-Region 9 has created an annual scholarship in memory of Harvey Creek, one of the original members of Region 9.
Harvey joined the RCMP in 1958 and served at various postings in Alberta and Saskatchewan. He retired as a Sergeant in 1981. Harvey was an extremely active member of the IPA, having joined in 1972, and for decades was the Travel Officer for our region. He met and hosted hundreds of guests from around the globe. He was also the founder and editor of the Rusty Westcoaster, a monthly newsletter that reached hundreds of IPA members internationally.
The Harvey Creek Professional Development Scholarship will involve an application process, with the selected candidate awarded up to $1000.00 to put towards attendance at a qualifying IPA event.
Applications will normally be accepted in September of each year, with the scholarship to be used in the following calendar year.
However, due to its current inauguration, there will be an additional application process this year starting today, with a deadline of July 3, 2023. The winner will be able to use the scholarship for a qualifying IPA event during the remainder of 2023.
