Giving to Nursing

Whether it's speaking to an undergraduate class, mentoring a practica student, or hiring a new graduate, there are many ways you can help tomorrow's leaders.  Donations to the University of Victoria can take many forms, from one-time gifts of cash or donations in kind, to planned gifts through one's will.

We are currently seeking funds for scholarships and bursaries, especially for undergraduate nursing students and aspiring nurse practitioners and nurse educators. In honour of the 40th Anniversary of the School of Nursing and recommendations from the TRC (Truth & Reconciliation Commission), a scholarship has been set up for a deserving Indigenous Undergraduate Nursing Student. Your gift will impact students and their work in the community for the rest of their lives. Please consider giving to make a difference in someone's life and in their community.

For more information or to make a contribution contact Development Officer Tricia Roche, 250-472-5031 or

Donor story

For Daryl Roddan, receiving bursaries and scholarships made it possible for him to complete his degree. Read Daryl's story on how donors can impact our students' lives.

Even during the hardest times, Daryl never regrets his decision to pursue nursing. But scholarships and bursaries make him more certain he’s on the right path. The way he sees it, if donors value this profession so much, if they’re willing to invest in it, they also value him and his choices. That gives him extra inspiration to continue his studies.
