Marilyn McCall Bursary

Marilyn McCrimmon (nee McCall) decided to endow the Marilyn McCall Bursary in Psychology with a gift of $25,000 and a top-up of $1,000 so the award can be given out this coming school year. Marilyn created this bursary for two reasons: First, she received bursaries herself during her own early years in post-secondary. Second, she loved studying psychology at UVic. She says the courses were varied, engaging, and challenging, and the professors were excellent as they stimulated and inspired the students, yet remained approachable and helpful. Marilyn’s wish is that this bursary helps students to continue their post-secondary studies in psychology at UVic, and she hopes that the chosen students enjoy their time studying psychology at UVic as much as she did.

The Psychology Department is very grateful for this generous donation!
