The Hilda Ramsay Bursary is granted annually to a female identifying student at UPEI or Holland College. Hilda Ramsay was the first woman to run for the provincial legislature. In 2019, the NDP PEI Women’s Committee established the bursary to encourage activist women on the Island. The deadline for applications is November 1. Applications can be found at ndppei.ca. Funds for this bursary are raised at the annual Hilda Ramsay dinner, taking place this year on September 8 with guest speaker, activist and NDP MP Leah Gazan. To support this fund, call 330-2248.
