James Hamilton Allen Scholarships
Applications must be received on or before May 31st of the current year.


    In 1953, Allen invested $25,000 to create a $1,000 scholarship at the Nelson high school (now L.V. Rogers Secondary School) for male students who plan to enter careers in the Christian church. The scholarship is available for grade 12 graduates. Allen also contributed funds to support the NUC Christian Education Committee.
In 1959, Allen was awarded a service shield at St. Paul’s Trinity United Church, honouring his 50 years in the church community. For a time, he was also the director of the Nelson YMCA. “Jimmy” Allen is fondly remembered by many as Nelson’s first established scenic photographer, and an outstanding community member.
