WURA Scholarship

Students on campus

"Scholarships mean so much to students", says fourth-year nursing student Jordyn Liebman, recipient of an award sponsored by the Windsor University Retirees Association.

“It’s easier to succeed academically and get involved in activities on campus when you don’t have to choose between studying and picking up an extra shift to pay bills,” Liebman says in a DailyNews article that featured both her and Roger Lauzon (pictured on the right) on April 18, 2019.
