Editors' Canada (British Columbia Branch) Scholarship
The Editors Association of Canada (BC Branch) Scholarship was established in 2003 with the purpose of supporting students graduating from the Print Futures program at Douglas College. The Print Futures program became the Professional Communication Post-Degree Diploma program in 2014. As a result of rebranding the name of this fund changed to the Editors Canada (BC Branch) Scholarship in 2017.
Mary Fewster Memorial Nursing Scholarship
The Mary Fewster Memorial Nursing Scholarship was established in 1987 by family, friends and colleagues of Mary Fewster. Mary was a founding member of the Douglas College Nursing department and became the Director of Nursing in 1981. She was also a consultant with the World Health Organization, where she worked on curriculum development for nursing schools throughout the Caribbean. Mary was strongly committed to advancing standards of excellence in nursing, emphasizing the humanitarian aspects of the nursing profession, and as such, this scholarship recognizes and rewards Douglas College Nursing students who excel academically, who demonstrate caring attitudes and who have a commitment to nursing.
