Since its inception in 1898, the May Court Club of Ottawa has supported social service and education projects and now offers:
The May Court Club of Ottawa Susan Anderson Memorial Scholarship for Information Studies at the University of Ottawa
In 2006, thanks to a bequest from Susan Anderson, the Board of Directors established the Susan Anderson Memorial Scholarship, offered yearly to a qualified student entering the first or second year of the Master’s Program in Information Studies at the University of Ottawa. It is seen as a fitting tribute to Susan Anderson’s dedication to her career as a Parliamentary librarian and her volunteer work at the Rykert Library at the Civic Hospital – a service financed and staffed by the May Court Club of Ottawa.
RECENT SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
The 2021/2022 May Court Club of Ottawa Susan Anderson Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Allegra Newman (University of Ottawa)
Testimonial: “The Susan Anderson Memorial Scholarship has been instrumental in helping me continue my education at the University of Ottawa. My new skills and knowledge within the field of information studies have led to an exciting employment opportunity at the National Arts Center. Thank you May Court Club for your support.”.
The May Court Club of Ottawa Centennial Scholarships for Nurse Practitioners
In 1999, with funds from the proceeds of the 100th Anniversary Ball, the May Court Centennial Scholarship was established and now supports Nurse Practitioner education. Two scholarships are awarded yearly to qualified nurses entering the first or second year of study at an approved Ontario University.
