The Rosemary Orr Scholarship Fund was established in 2017 to provide financial assistance to students that have demonstrated perseverance and leadership amidst adversity. Through the financial support of students, the scholarship committee intends to honour the memory of dr. Rosemary Orr and her passion for enabling hardworking and determined students that use their leadership, creativity and humour to create diverse and inclusive communities. It gives special consideration to students who value education and take an active role in creating inclusive communities.
The scholarship committee basis their selection on the following criteria:
- Want to pursue any degree in any subject area at UCU
- Will meet minimum academic standards as set by UCU
- Demonstrate perseverance and leadership in the face of adversity, with emphasis on those who have grown up in a conflict-zone or an economically impoverished region
- Foster inclusiveness and respect in their communities
- Value the transformative and empowering effects of education
We are welcoming donations for scholarships for students starting their education at UCU in the academic year 2018-2019. Donate to the Rosemary Orr Scholarship fund today!
