A bursary fund of about $10,000 has been established in honour of Grace Parasiuk by Wilson Parasiuk of Burnaby, B.C. and the Parasiuk family, and by Sylvia Chesterman of Mount Royal, Quebec and the Chesterman family. Grace Parasiuk was a member of the education community in Manitoba for many years.
Interest income from this fund is to provide bursaries of varying amounts to students in the Women's Studies Program who have good academic standing (minimum 3.00 GPA) and who have demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.
The selection committee shall be named by the Coordinator of the Women's Studies Program.
