Douglas and Beverly BANKSON Scholarship in Creative Writing

A scholarship of $1,750 has been endowed by colleagues, friends and former students to honour Douglas Bankson and his wife, Beverly, on the occasion of his retirement in 1985 from the Department of Creative Writing. The scholarship symbolizes the respect, admiration and affection that many people have felt toward Douglas Bankson because of his superb achievement over many years as a teacher, administrator, originator and writer, and especially as a friend of promise, both inside and outside the university. It is awarded to an undergraduate student who has completed a Creative Writing course in his/her first or second year at UBC, who has shown unusual promise as a writer and who will major in Creative Writing in the third year. The award is made on the recommendation of the Department of Creative Writing.
