Noah Russell "Return-To-Univeristy" Bursary
This bursary has been established in memory of Noah Russell, who attended StFX University from 2007-2010.  While at StFX, Noah played on the men’s rugby team and was a member of the event staff.  When he left StFX to persue job opportunities, it was his goal to one day return to the university to complete his Human Kinetics and Psychology degree.  Noah died tragically in a motor vehicle accident in 2014 before this could be achieved.  Noah was fond of the quote by Stacy Allison, the first American woman to climb Mt. Everest: “I’ve always had those little goals that I’ve worked toward – they add up.” It is hoped that this bursary will help students for whom returning to university is one of those little or big goals. The recipient of this award may be a part-time or full-time student returning to university following an absence of at least one year away from their studies at a post-secondary institution.  Applicants should outline their academic goals in the bursary criteria section of the application and explain how the bursary will facilitate achieving those goals.  All “returning-to-university’ students are encouraged to apply, although preference will be given to students enrolled in more than once course.
Award Value: up to $1000
