The Andrea Fallan Memorial Bursary was established by family members and friends of the late Andrea Fallan, a Bachelor of Commerce student at RRU. During her studies, her positive attitude impacted the lives of many students, staff members and instructors. Her tragic passing took her away too soon and has affected a wide community of family, friends, colleagues, RRU staff, and students. Through this memorial bursary, Andrea's kind spirit and contagious energy will be recognized and remembered.
