Ray Hrynkow Scholarship

This scholarship promotes “intelligent design,” and honours the late Ray Hrynkow CGD, FGDC. “The scholarship is for the thinking designer,” said Ray. “This could range from an understanding of how to better motivate human beings to honour their planet, to understanding what it means to be a single parent, to anything in between. It doesn't necessarily have to be altruistic, simply intelligent and not materialistic. For more information about the GDC Foundation, click here.
