Professor Nicole LaViolette, whose name graces our award at the University of Ottawa, has left Lambda a generous gift of $9,750, bringing the current total of the endowment to over $31,000. Nicole passed away in May after a very brave and determined struggle with cancer. She accomplished a great deal in the area of international human rights even after her illness was first diagnosed four years ago. She was truly an inspiration. Donations to the Nicole LaViolette Friends of Lambda Prize can be made through Lambda and we will forward them to the University of Ottawa.
