Roman Melnyk was a known Canadian television industry worker who passed away in 2012. In 2013, a scholarship was created in memory of Roman by his family and friends. The purpose of this scholarship is to uphold truth and fairness in reporting, by providing funding for students of the UCU journalism program, that come from eastern and southern Ukraine. In honour of the 10 year anniversary of his passing, Roman’s wife donated an additional $25,000 to further support the fund. For more information about this fund click on the button below.
