Scholarship(s) totaling $24,450 have been endowed by friends and family in honour of Associate Professor Emerita Katherine Brearley (BA '35, MA '39, Doctorat Universit? de Paris) for undergraduate students entering their third or fourth year of study in the Faculty of Arts (Vancouver Campus). Katherine Brearley was a student at UBC in the 1930s and returned for a long career as a faculty member, Assistant Dean of Women and the first Senior Faculty Advisor in the Faculty of Arts. Professor Brearley had a significant impact on the many students she taught, mentored and inspired. Qualified students must have achieved a minimum Grade Point Average of 80% in the previous winter session; and, in their current winter session, students must have officially declared a major/honours/combined specialization. In selecting recipients, consideration is given to both scholarly excellence and the demonstrated ability to work with and lead others in student and community activities at the university, local, national and international level. The awards are made on the recommendation of a selection committee within the Faculty of Arts.
