Language, Literature and Performing Arts bursaries


Beth Anderson Memorial Bursary

Established in 1994 by Mary and Doug Anderson in memory of their daughter, the Beth Anderson Memorial Bursary honours the life of a gift writer and Douglas College Alumni. Beth discovered her passion for writing while attending the Print Futures program at Douglas College, where she achieved top marks while holding down a full-time job. The bursary was created in her name to support students in need at Douglas College. In 2014, the Print Futures program became the Professional Communication Post-Degree Diploma program. In 2018, Mary expanded the criteria to include any Communications program offered by Douglas College. In 2019, the criteria was expanded again by opening the bursary to a domestic student enrolled in a Communications course.



Performing Arts

The Society for the Preservation of Vaudeville Bursary in Honour of Jim Trimble

This fund was created in 2004 by the Society for the Preservation Of Vaudeville from the proceeds of a Vaudevillian performance. It is the desire of the society to raise funds by holding an annual concert and donating the proceeds to their endowment to assist students in any of the performing arts programs at Douglas College.
