About the Radikha Jaggernauth Conference Scholarships

Radikha Jaggernauth headshotIn August 2012, the Canadian prospect research community lost a valued member. Radikha Jaggernauth passed away after being diagnosed with cancer. Radikha was an Apra Canada Director responsible for the Regional Representatives portfolio. Over the years, she gave a great deal of time as a volunteer with Apra. As a prospect researcher, Radikha contributed directly to the success of a number of organisations, including the Heart and Stroke Foundation, UNICEF and the United Way of Greater Toronto. She is remembered as a kind-hearted, funny, inquisitive, and focused individual who was committed to Apra Canada and the research profession. The 2011-2012 Apra Canada Board of Directors renamed the Apra Canada Scholarships in Radikha's memory.
