Previous Awards


The Thakore Visiting Scholar Award is presented Annually at Simon Fraser University.  It honours individuals who have devoted their lives to "creativity, commitment, and a deep concern for truth in public life, which includes, but it not limited to, showing the connection between academic values and critical public spirit."

The award also recognizes commitment to Gandhi's ideals of truth, non-violence, social justice, religious tolerance, education and ethics in politics.  In addition to these principles, the award adds racial equality and concern for balance between industry and the environment.

The Thakore Visiting Scholar Award has been awarded annually since 1991.
