This event has been made possible through the generosity of an anonymous donor and by the hard work of many fantastic Ban Righ Foundation volunteers. For over 40 years, this respectful community-university cooperation has helped to give mature women students real opportunities to complete their university degrees, to be role models in their families, and to fulfill their potential by becoming leaders in their workplaces and communities.
Please consider adding your support to one of these great initiatives:
Ban Righ Foundation Endowment:
This fund supports The Ban Righ Centre which is uniquely geared to assist women of all ages returning to study at Queen's after a time away from formal education or starting for the first time when mature
The Martin Bursary:
Established in May 2001 by Gladys Martin and Joan Martin Sargeant in memory of their father, Thomas Martin, to reflect his support and a life-long interest in the education of women. Awarded on the basis of financial need to a woman student.
