Fraser Noseworthy Memorial International Scholarship

About the Scholarship

Fraser Noseworthy was a freshman in the Health & Society major of the Bachelor of Health Sciences Program at the University of Calgary. His life was tragically cut short in an accident in 2005. Although, Fraser had been part of the Health Sciences Program for a few short months, he touched all of those with whom he had contact. Fraser was enriched by his international travels and so this scholarship program sustains his legacy for others.


Eligibility

Students registered in the BHSc program are eligible to apply, unless on academic probation.

Funding Amounts

Each year, two scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $3,000 each for travel and expenses related to a project or research activity with the potential to influence health and wellness, including health care, in an international setting. Priority will be given to projects or research activities that involve developing countries. The experience is meant to result in a formal presentation, public report or peer-reviewed publication, which informs or influences health and wellness, or health care. This may include presentation of research findings at the BHSc Research Symposium.

NOTE

Recipients of the Fraser Noseworthy Memorial International Scholarship remain eligible for studentship funding through other programs.
