The Tony Williams Memorial Scholarship for Indigenous Students in Mathematics-Related Programs
In memory of Tony Williams, the Actuarial Foundation of Canada has donated $5,000 to create scholarships for Indigenous Canadian students pursuing university studies in mathematics-related programs.

Among his seminal contributions were his many years as president and chair of the Verna J.
