At Mount Royal University, we remember
Since our founding in 1910, hundreds of Mount Royal students, faculty, staff and alumni have served in uniform. Since the First World War, 29 have given their lives.
We remember them. We remember their potential, their names - their faces. In keeping with our tradition of forging lifelong connections, the thread that ties each revered member of this group to Mount Royal will now stretch beyond their lifespan to touch generations.
In 2011, Mount Royal’s centennial year, we created a memorial bursary in the name of each of our fallen soldiers. Following Canada’s 150th anniversary, we seek to raise funds in order to create a permanent endowment for each of these bursaries.
These Military Memorial Bursaries will honour the sacrifice made by the fallen members of our Mount Royal family, while furthering the dreams of 29 Mount Royal students, every year, in perpetuity.
We invite you to give to the Military Memorial Bursary Program.
What is a bursary?
A bursary is a monetary award given to a student based on financial need and acceptable academic achievement.
Did you know?
MRU students who receive a bursary are 2.2 times more likely to graduate. Due to lack of funding, 91 per cent of students who qualify for a bursary do not receive one.
In the 2018/19 academic year, 19 of the 29 Military Memorial Bursary Program recipients are active members or veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces.
