The Robbie and Jean Shaw Scholarship Fund was created by a group of dedicated donors interested in paying tribute to the Shaw family for their long-term commitment to making the world a better place.


Specifically, Robbie and Jean love the IWK and they believe in the potential and passion of every young person to make a meaningful difference, in part, thanks to a strong educational foundation. IWK children and youth have a special place in Robbie and Jean's hearts because of their long term professional and volunteer experience with the IWK Health Centre and the IWK Foundation.
