Established in September 2017, The Women’s Hockey 1970s Championship Award is granted to those who exhibit academic achievement and athletic excellence in their degree program at Queen’s University. Students who are currently on the competition roster of the Gaels interuniversity women’s hockey team are eligible to receive the honour.

Undergraduate student Taylor Hicks (Artsci '22) who plays as a forward on the Gaels hockey team was recognized on October 26, 2017. After learning of U SPORTS: Canadian Interuniversity Sport’s decision to hold the women’s hockey championship at Queen’s for the first time in 2017, an impressive 27 women’s hockey alumnae came together to create the award. The women won multiple championships throughout the 1970s and want to ensure that female athletes today are afforded the same opportunities to compete.

To make a contribution in support of Queen’s women’s hockey athletes please visit The Women’s Hockey 1970s Championship Teams Athletic Award page.

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.
