Humanities and Social Sciences bursaries

Multi-Department

Caroline Chan Memorial Bursary
The Frank Wing Memorial Bursary was established by Caroline and Adrienne Chan, in 1989, to honour their uncle, Frank Wing. The bursary was created to support students in need who are enrolled in programs relating to social services and social sciences at Douglas College with preference given to students of Aboriginal, Asian or South Asian descent. In 2013, Caroline Chan passed away and the bursary was renamed in her memory.

Criminology

The Notary Foundation and BC Notaries Bursary
The Notary Foundation of BC was established 1985 and is the recipient of the interest paid by BC credit unions, Canadian chartered banks and trust companies when clients' funds are held in trust by a BC Notary Public. The Notary Foundation receives and distributes these funds earned each year in accordance with the goals and objectives set by the Board of Governors.  One way they use the funds is to provide scholarships and bursaries to students in colleges and universities taking certain law-related courses. In 2006, The Notary Foundation established The Notary Foundation and BC Notaries Bursary at Douglas College to support students enrolled in the Legal Studies Diploma program. In 2015, the criteria was expanded to include students enrolled in Criminology programs.

The Notary Foundation of BC has been supporting students enrolled in the Legal Studies program in the Criminology department at Douglas College since 2006 through their Bursary and Scholarship endowment funds. In 2016, The Notary Foundation of BC’s Applied Criminology Bursary endowment fund was created to recognize and reward students enrolled in their 3rd or 4th year of studies in the newly established Applied Criminology Degree program at Douglas. The Notary Foundation of BC has been supporting students in the areas of Legal Education, Legal Research and Law Libraries since 1985.

The Wayne Strandlund Bursary
The Wayne Strandlund Bursary was established in 2017, by The Notary Foundation of BC, in honour of Wayne’s exceptional contributions to the Foundation as a board member and Governor. Wayne provided The Notary Foundation with the initial seed money to establish a First Nations bursary and Douglas College students are now the fortunate recipients of that initial gesture through this grant from The Notary Foundation. The Wayne Strandlund Bursary supports aboriginal students, who are in financial need and enrolled in their 3rd or 4th year of the Criminology Degree program at Douglas College. Preference is given to students specializing in the Legal Studies stream of the program.

Future Teachers

Arlene Clay Memorial Bursary
In 2012, Douglas College Foundation hosted the first ever Bursary Draw at A Class Act. Proceeds from the tickets sold, plus a generous donation from winning guest Mike Clay, went directly to students in need. Mike named the bursary in memory of his mother, Arlene Clay, a retired School District 43 teacher, who initiated what became a district-wide public speaking program. The Arlene Clay Memorial Bursary provides support to Port Moody residents with a preference to those enrolled in the Future Teachers - Associate of Arts Degree program at Douglas College.

Randall Rhajan Sall Memorial Bursary
The Randall Rhajan Sall Memorial Bursary was established by family and friends in 2007, to honour the memory of Randall (Randy) Sall, a Douglas College Alumnus. Randy received his Certificate in Childcare and later returned as a mature student to obtain his Teaching Degree. By this time, Randy was working full-time while raising four children under the age of 11. This bursary supports students who are pursuing a career as a child and youth counselor or as a teacher and who, like Randy, need to create a positive balance between personal responsibilities and professional goals. Randy was raised in Port Coquitlam and lived in 'PoCo' until his untimely passing in 2007. He was very proud of his hometown. As such, preference is given to mature students and students who live in Port Coquitlam.

History

Rhoda Friedrichs Memorial Bursary
Established in 2014 in memory of Rhoda Friedrichs, a Douglas College faculty member and former Chair of the History Department, this bursary supports students in financial need in any program or faculty at Douglas College with a preference to students studying History. Rhoda held a Ph.D. in History from Columbia University and joined the History Department at Douglas College in 1989. She was an inspiring teacher who presented numerous conference papers and published a series of articles on late medieval England.
