At its April 2015
AGM, the ADRP membership passed a motion to establish with
Dalhousie a fund to pay bursaries to students in any
undergraduate program in second year and above.
discussions with the Development Office the ADRP Bursary
Fund was established with an initial goal of $25,000 set
after which payment of bursaries would commence. Spending
from such funds is done at a rate of 4.25% annually which
would provide $1100 in bursaries from the $25,000 target
amount. It is hoped that the target will be reached by the
time 200th anniversary celebrations at Dalhousie begin.
contribution of $10,000 was made by the Association with an
invitation to individual members to also contribute. By the
date of the 2016 AGM the fund had exceeded $17,000. At that
AGM the members passed a further motion to contribute an
amount of surplus of up to $2,000 matching new contributions
made by members prior to June 30th.
The Fund is
open-ended. Contributions can be made after the initial
target is reached.
Updates on the
value of the fund are provided through the ADRP newsletter,
and at general meetings of the Association.
