Liam Closs Mannion graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2008 with a Baccalaurate in Social Sciences, specializing in International Development.  Liam was planning on furthering his studies in this field when he died in a tragic car accident in July 2009.  Liam was 23 years old.  He was an outgoing, passionate & sometimes outrageous young man with many friends & a yen to make a difference.

During his studies Liam visited Africa twice, first to complete a course offering in Senegal.  He then volunteered in Ethiopia with Little Voices, a small charity working with Ethiopian partners to offer programs for street children in the capital, Addis Ababa.  These experiences deeply touched Liam & changed his world view; he thought more about poverty & social justice & how we can make a difference.  He went on to volunteer at the Boys & Girls Club back in Ottawa before his accident.

Liam’s  friends & family are keeping his memory & charitable efforts alive by sponsoring a self-sustaining bursary in his name at the University of Ottawa.  This bursary will be granted on an annual basis to senior students in the international development stream in Social Sciences, to help enable them to volunteer or study abroad.   Applications will be vetted by a faculty committee & students will be expected to analyze & share their learning when back in Canada.
