Rick Morris Memorial Bursary

Rick Morris Memorial Bursary

This bursary was established in memory of Rick Morris by his family and friends. Rick was a caring individual who was deeply committed to Newfoundland and worked with a variety of individuals, organizations, and government. He was a mentor to many, helping professionals, who regularly sought his counsel on personal and professional issues. He was deeply concerned with violence against individuals, particularly women, children and the survivors of Mount Cashel. He was involved in the establishment of Unified Family Court's mediation services and frequently collaborated with the aboriginal and senior's communities. The bursary, valued at a portion of the income from the endowment, will be awarded annually to a student who is in financial need and meets the minimum academic requirements for a bursary. It will be awarded on a rotating basis to a student enrolled in one of the following academic areas: Year 1 - School of Social Work, Year 2 - Faculty of Education, Year 3 - School of Human Kinetics and Recreation, Year 4 - Department of Gender Studies and Year 5 - School of Nursing. The bursary will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards upon the recommendation of the Head of the Unit for which the bursary is being awarded.
