This award is established in loving memory of Jaclyn Rogerson, a well respected graduate from the School of Pharmacy’s Class of 2004. The bursary is a result of gifts to Memorial University of Newfoundland by Jaclyn’s family and friends to honour her commitment to the pharmacy profession and her community. As a gifted communicator and empathetic pharmacist, Jaclyn succeeded in providing caring support to her patients and community.
The bursary will be awarded to a student entering their final year in the Pharmacy program. Based on financial need and a minimum GPA of 2 (out of a possible 4), preference will be given to a student who also demonstrates a combination of a strong ability to communicate and empathize with patients, school spirit or who actively engages in community service.
The bursary is valued at a portion of the income from the endowment.
