With Appreciation to Our Donors

New Bursary for Indigenous Students

A new bursary for Indigenous students is now available thanks to the generous support of alumnus and Chancellor Jim Leech. The Chancellor Jim Leech Bursary for Indigenous Students will help Indigenous students with financial need achieve their academic goals. 

Inspired by his involvement with the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre and the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Chancellor Leech has chosen to mark the end of his first term with this generous gift.

Applications for the Chancellor Jim Leech Bursary for Indigenous Students are to be made via the General Bursary application which is available on SOLUS with a deadline of October 31, 2017.

Queen's Gazette Stories (October 12, 2017)


The generosity of Queen's donors makes a significant impact within the Queen's community, and in particular in the lives of our students. Over forty percent of the assistance provided by the Student Awards Office is made possible through the generous contributions of Queen's donors! 

There are several options for donors interested in supporting Queen's students through student financial assistance.

Queen's Student Financial Assistance Fund

This endowment fund enables the recognition and supports for the achievement and outstanding potential of Queen's students in all programs, all years, from acceptance to graduation. As well, this fund enables Queen's to respond with agility to the changing needs and expectations of students today and in the future. Donations of all sizes are welcome and will be pooled in a common endowment to ensure maximum growth potential and impact on the quality of our students' educational experience. We encourage donors to consider this option as a way to maximize the impact of their giving.

Named Endowment

Endowed gifts ensure that the bursary, award, scholarship or fellowship you establish lives on forever! A minimum gift of $50,000 will establish an endowed fund that can be named for yourself, a loved one, or perhaps a favourite professor or member of the Queen's community.
