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) “As the recipient of the May Court Club of Ottawa Scholarship, I was fortunate to have had the additional financial funds necessary, to keep me afloat during the ongoing pandemic. I am extremely grateful to have had the support of May Court Club of Ottawa during this unprecedented academic year”.
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.
