Two lucky University of Regina freshmen will be breathing a little easier when it comes time to pay tuition, thanks to the newly bequested Ross John Kirk Entrance Bursary.
Kirk, and traveler and salesman, provided the university with a total fund of over $200,000 to create the award in his name. The bursary will be awarded to two full-time first-year students each year, and will be based on a combination of academic standing and financial need.
President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Vianne Timmons expressed appreciation for the gift, saying that “Mr. Kirk’s generous gift is a means of helping in this regard by providing financial assistance that is so important to student success over the long term. I would like to thank Mr. Kirk for this gift, and for the confidence he has shown in our students – our future leaders.”
