J.D. Leslie student prize

The J.D. Leslie Prize is awarded to the graduating student who has achieved a first-class standing and who has earned 50% or more of the credits for his or her undergraduate degree through online courses. 

This $1,000 prize is named for the late James D. Leslie, PhD., who began the University of Waterloo's Correspondence Program in 1968 (now the Centre for Extended Learning). It is awarded annually at the fall convocation ceremony.
