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
David Bynoe (University of Ottawa) “This award is something that I am incredibly grateful for, especially during this time of economic uncertainty due to the global pandemic of Covid-19. This upcoming academic year will be surely one to remember, as many of my classes are being moved entirely online. These new circumstances will bring forth a new set of challenges, since students will be required to adjust to a new standard of working from home. However, throughout all of this, I pledge to positively represent the May Court Club of Ottawa, by remaining a productive, involved member within my Information Studies program and community at large.”
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.
Due to Covid-19 constraints the Centennial Scholarships were suspended for the 2020-21 academic year. Fortunately, they have been reinstituted for the 2021-22 academic year.
