Building better futures
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.
