Donation will enhance Marilyn and Sandy Wilson Nursing Scholarship Endowment Fund

May 23, 2014 - On May 21, 2014, Dave Wilson met with President Alan Wildeman and Dean Linda Patrick to present a $20,000 cheque from his brother Sandy's estate to enhance the Marilyn and Sandy Wilson Nursing Scholarship endowment fund. This scholarship is awarded to two students registered full-time in the Faculty of Nursing entering Year 3 and Year 4 in the upcoming Fall semester. It is given based on good academic performance (minimum cumulative average of 75%), and proven financial need. Candidates must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents (includes those with Protected Persons status), who meet OSAP Ontario residency requirements. As part of their award application, candidates provide a statement of intent to pursue a career in direct patient care nursing in a hospital setting, outlining the reasons for that intent.

Together with the Isabel Wilson Nursing Scholarships, these scholarships salute from both perspectives the importance of the nurse-patient relationship.

The application deadline for these two scholarships has been extended this year to June 6, 2014. Click here for details (scroll down the list to the Wilson awards information).
