Daniel James Frazer Bursary

Value: $1,500 renewable
Special Audience: Single Parents

RRU faculty member Dr. Ann Dale and her family have established this bursary in the memory of their beloved Daniel James Frazer. This annually renewable bursary will be given to a first-year masters or doctoral student at RRU who demonstrates financial need and is currently working or volunteering with a non-governmental organization (NGO), with a minimum of one year experience, with a social justice, environmental, human rights, or governance mandate. Preference will be given to a single parent.

One bursary will be offered each year in November either as a renewed payment or open for competition. The bursary is intended to provide assistance for each calendar year a student is registered in the normal course of their program to provide consistent support and to encourage timely completion of study. It will be offered for a maximum of two years to a master student, or four years to a doctoral student.

Royal Roads University is grateful to Daniel's continuing legacy.
