Saverio Nestico Judicial Award of Excellence Bursary for Law Students

The Saverio Nestico Judicial Award of Excellence Bursary for Law Students was established by Saverio Nestico, a Justice of the Peace for Ontario. He was appointed to the Ontario Court of Justice in 2007 and served as President of the Association of Justices of the Peace of Ontario (AJPO) for over 4 years. He previously served an active role in the justice system by volunteering as a probation officer. His Worship recognized the need to give back to the community, serving on past Boards for Victim Services.

This bursary is made possible by his generosity in the amount of $1000 per year for a three-year period, payable to a qualified law student at an accredited Ontario law school.

Justice Nestico created this bursary to assist law students who demonstrate academic excellence, commitment to their studies, participation in extracurricular affairs, and who are in financial need.
