Rosalee was a dear friend and graduate of the photography program at ACAD. She worked as a photographer in Calgary and Vancouver.

This scholarship is annually awarded to a student of the Photography Department at ACAD. It has been a few years since our last major fundraiser, and the fund has dropped below a self-sustaining level. Our goal is to raise enough funds so it can sustain itself in perpetuity.

Rosalee passed away March of 2006. Many people within the photographic community, who worked with Rosalee, will remember her for her generous efforts to support various charities by providing original photography.

The scholarship is designed to encourage students to provide original photography to charities and not for profit organizations.
