$300 Alice Donald Bursary

Yukon University
January 31, 2023

The Alice Donald Bursary is available to physically disabled students in their second-year at Yukon University.

Born in Victoria, BC in 1912, Mrs. Donald moved to Whitehorse in 1976 following brain surgery that left her without the use of her right arm, limited use of her right leg, and a severe speech impediment. She was well known for her production of hooked wall hangings, which she would craft with her non-dominant hand.
