Georgia Klap Award

Georgia Klap was a student of environmental studies, geography, and the humanities. She was an outspoken proponent of social and environmental justice. She was drawn to experiential learning and was a participant in the environmental studies field school, Redfish School of Change, in 2012. Georgia worked in and maintained a garden plot with her brother Sam in the UVic Campus Community Gardens. 

She died tragically on February 16, 2013 in a house fire along with her two good friends, Emily Morin and Mark Mitchell. Everyone who knew Georgia was deeply affected by her authenticity, determination and unbridled love for nature and all living beings. This memorial scholarship was created to honour her life, her compassionate and empathetic nature, her dynamic creativity and her infectious spirit.
