The Foundation of Administrative Justice is a non-profit association dedicated to training in the administrative justice environment for tribunals, presenters, and administrators. The FOAJ Bursary is the first bursary of the Foundation, starting in 2009. FOAJ created the Bursary in recognition of its benefactor, David Elliott, to recognize his spirited passion and commitment to excellence in justice, and his belief that there are no barriers to furthering one’s learning.
