A new bursary is being established to commemorate a beloved colleague, community member and friend. Friends and family of Roxy Denniston-Stewart are invited to make donations to help fund a new bursary that will provide financial support to students who wish to study at the Bader International Study Centre (BISC), Herstmonceux Castle, Sussex, England.

Roxy Denniston-Stewart was known for her leadership, generosity, and continued commitment to the personal and academic success of Queen’s students. In her 19 years with Queen’s, she served as the Associate Dean, Student Services and Community Relations, and as the Student and Enrolment Services Manager at the BISC. Her work at the BISC furthered her belief in the transformational effect of a global experience for students.

Denniston-Stewart passed away in August 2019, leaving behind a legacy of unparalleled student guidance, compassion, and support.

“Thousands of students have benefitted from Roxy’s commitment to their success and well-being,” says Ann Tierney, Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs. “That is why we are establishing the Roxy Denniston-Stewart Memorial Bursary, to commemorate Roxy’s invaluable role within the Queen’s community.”

The Roxy Denniston-Stewart Memorial Bursary will be awarded to students attending the BISC on the basis of demonstrated financial need.
