Building better futures

Devlin McDermitt and donors Glenn and Pauline Greene

Featured student scholarship
Royal Jubilee Hospital nurse Devlin McDermitt, had not anticipated the heavy demands that would be placed on her by following her calling. "Although the nursing program has been challenging, and has expected more of me than I ever thought possible, it is well worth the time and effort." The Greene Scholarship not only provided Devlin with much needed financial assistance, it has motivated her studies even more as she feels that her dedication and hard work have been recognized, and that is exactly what the Greenes envisioned - recognizing the potential that student financial aid had to offer. The Greenes established their endowed scholarship after many years of supporting UVic through annual gifts. Now the Greene's generosity is providing a legacy of support that will continue to help aspiring nursing students like Devlin achieve their dreams for years to come.

Funding stories

Darlene Scott 

The Darlene Scott Scholarship is named after Darlene Scott (nee Ingham) with its preferred recipient being a woman returning to study after years of work and/or raising a family. It is her example that inspires this award. In the late 1930's she began her studies as a nursing student but was unable to complete them because of an allergic reaction to the black stockings that were required wear for nursing students. She never gave up her dream of education and in her late forties began taking university courses through extension at York University, Glendon College. She had raised four children, was a founder and leader of a network of women's study groups through her church when she died at age 54 from cancer. All her children became university graduates. Two of her sons have followed her example and returned to school in later life both completing PhD's and her daughter is an acclaimed writer and university faculty member.
