Dana Schroeder Memorial Scholarship in Genetics

Dana always encouraged her students to apply for as many scholarships as possible so the family wanted to set up an award in her memory. This would go to a graduate student in Biological Science who is studying genetics. They are putting in initial funds and anyone who wishes to add to the pot can visit the web page put up by Donor Relations. Permanent awards require a very large initial donation ($25 K) but smaller amounts can be spent out through Faculty of Science, for example, $5K as a $1000 award over 5 years, which is closer to the scenario we are expecting.

If you click on the donor page you will see that there is an option to enter your name or remain anonymous.  The family will receive a list of names for those that were entered and the total amount donated, but Donor Relations never releases individual amounts donated.
