The University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management has established a fellowship in the name of the late John A. Tory with a $180,000 commitment from Thomson Reuters.
The annual fellowship will provide a $40,000 award to a full-time MBA student. The recipient will also have the opportunity to participate in a competitive 10-week paid internship in the Summer Associates Program at Thomson Reuters prior to their last year of study.
John A. Tory graduated with a law degree from the University of Toronto and was a partner with Torys from 1954 to 1973. He then served in many capacities for the Thomson family, including president of Woodbridge, the Thomson family holding company; deputy chairman of The Thomson Corporation; and was a member of the board of Thomson Reuters at the time of his death earlier this year.
