Established in 2000 in memory of Patricia Boucher, an exchange student from Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin, through the generous support of her family and the many friends she made among the students at Huron University College. It is intended to assist a student with travel expenses associated with the Huron/Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin exchange program. The recipient must be registered in a full-time program at Huron University College and demonstrate financial need. If no Huron student is eligible, the bursary may assist a Versailles student on exchange at Huron or assist a Huron student participating in an exchange with another European university.
Value: approx. $2,000 (open to several students)
