Scholarships

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.
