Nathan Cowan Memorial Fund - The Student

At the time of Nathan’s passing, he was on the verge of receiving a dual degree in Mechanical Engineering and Economics at Queen’s University. In May of 2002, the University posthumously awarded Nathan the degrees he was poised to achieve. Nathan enrolled at Queen’s in 1996, and lived with his childhood friend Oskar Johansson. Together, they joined the Queen’s Sailing Team, achieved high academic standing, promoted the well-being of the University, coached sailing, and in collaboration with Bernard Luttmer, founded a successful student-run business called Course Cram. Successfully juggling all of these commitments is a testament of Nathan’s commitment to hard work, as well as a realization of his own credo:

“The only compensation for a lack of moderation is excellence.”
