Centennial Celebrations

Military Memorial Bursary — At Mount Royal University we remember

Since our founding in 1910, hundreds of Mount Royal students, faculty, staff and alumni have served in uniform. 28 gave their lives.

Today, and always, we remember them. We remember their potential, their names — their faces. And in keeping with our tradition of forging lifelong connections with our students, the thread that ties each revered member of this group to Mount Royal will now stretch beyond their lifespan, to touch generations.

A future legacy in our fallen soldiers’ names

A memorial bursary has been created in the name of each of our fallen soldiers. These scholarships honour their sacrifice while furthering the dreams of 28 Mount Royal students — today and tomorrow.

Retired General John de Chastelain, former Chief of Canadian Defence and 1956 Mount Royal alum, was Honourary Chair of the project.

“As a Mount Royal graduate and a retired professional solider I am very pleased to be involved,” de Chastelain said at the time.

“At a time when Canada is again at war, Mount Royal University wishes to recognize Canada’s distinguished military history, as well as to remember the role Mount Royal students, graduates and staff members played in the armed forces, some of whom gave their lives for their country."
