MUNFA Scholarship Fund


Room ER4047 Alexander Murray Building St. John’s NF A1B 3X5

The Memorial University of Newfoundland Faculty Association has established a trust fund to provide scholarships and bursaries to students who demonstrate high academic standards and are in need of financial assistance. Assistance from this fund is available to first year students as well as to those further along in their studies and may be re-applied for in subsequent years. The first of the MUNFA Scholarships awarded each year is the Ditte Koster Memorial Scholarship. This award honours the late Ditte Koster who, up to the time of her death, was a professional librarian at the University.

This Year

Due to the generosity of our contributors, the majority of whom are current or retired MUNFA members, we were able to award six scholarships of $2,500 for six students. However, we think we can do better next year!

How can you contribute?
