The Luc Gates Foundation is proud to offer this scholarship to select students that personify the respectful, selfless and leadership traits that Luc exhibited throughout his life. While academic achievements are important, we encourage all students to apply as this scholarship is awarded to individuals committed to sportsmanship, honor and respect to themselves, their families and their community.
