Award Detail Information

Name Margaret Nilson Memorial Endowment Bursary
Description The Margaret Nilson Memorial Endowment Bursary provides an annual award to a College of New Caledonia student with demonstrated financial need. This bursary was made possible by daughter, Linda Todoruk, family and friends of the late Margaret Nilson. Many years ago, as a young, single parent with four small children, Margaret was forced to work full time, look after her children, manage her finances, and took many night and summer classes in order to obtain her teaching degree. She had a passion for teaching and knew the importance of an education. She encouraged all she knew to get an education and even with her own struggles to make ends meet, if she had money available, would help them.
