This bursary will be given annually to one learner enrolled in the second year of the MA in Human Security and Peace building program who is involved in humanitarian work that contributes to the empowerment of women and/or children.
Championed by friends and family of Shirley Case, to create a lasting legacy in honour of her admirable efforts to change the lives of many in a positive way. Shirley's work included but was not limited to working with youth, people with disabilities and environmental issues. Her work in designing education services for children with disabilities recognized a group often forgotten about by relief work.
Shirley dedicated herself to the building of communities and empowerment through education, but her tragic passing took her too soon, and has affected a wide community of family, friends, colleagues, RRU staff, and alumni. Through this memorial fund, Shirley’s spirit and many achievements and accomplishments will be recognized and remembered.
