|Bishop Spencer College Alumnae Association|
Since its inception after the first BSC Reunion in 2000, the BSCAA has awarded
20 scholarships, bursaries, and academic excellence awards. These awards were given to 16
gifted and intelligent young women (we had some repeat winners) and totalled over $20,000
in value. We "old girls" of Bishop Spencer College can be proud of our small contribution
to the education and careers of these 16 young ladies.
After the Reunion in 2009, Judith Price, Ruby Legge, and Barbara Clancy met with Tara Pearce, Senior Development Officer, and Jillian Gibson of the Alumni Affairs and Development Department of Memorial University to establish the Bishop Spencer College Alumnae Association Bursary Endowment Fund.
At that meeting, in consultation with Ms. Pearce and Ms. Gibson as to where the area of greatest need was, we decided that the BSCAA Bursary "will be awarded annually to a female student who is enrolled in the fourth year of any undergraduate degree program in the Faculty of Arts. The recipient must meet the minimum academic and financial requirements for a bursary as defined by the university. The Bursary will be administered by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards upon recommendation of the Dean, Faculty of Arts." – Section 3 of the gift agreement between the BSCAA and MUN.
On March 27,2010, a cheque for $28,431.31 was presented to MUN to fund an annual $1000.00 bursary in perpetuity.
Anyone wishing more information about the BSCAA Bursary can find it on the MUN website http://www.mun.ca/scholarships/home/index.php or by contacting MUN by email at firstname.lastname@example.org If any Spencerians wish to make a contribution to this bursary fund, either as a gift or a memorial donation, please contact:
