Jean Stone Scholarship
We’re excited to launch the Jean Stone Scholarship, generously supported by the Stone Family. The scholarship is in memory of their beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Jean Stone, who was a nurse, caring for others throughout her career. This scholarship of up to $500 is intended to support volunteers working in palliative care by helping to broaden their knowledge. We will be awarding a minimum of 2 scholarships each year.
The scholarship must be put towards the cost of a conference or course on palliative care. This could be an upcoming educational opportunity in 2017, or one that took place within the past 6 months (June 1 – December 31, 2016).
The deadline for submitting applications in 31st March 2017.
Register now for our 2017 Roadshow!
“This Thing Called Grief – It’s Complicated” is a hands-on full-day workshop that will help you cope with grief and bereavement in more complex situations, such as medical aid in dying, suicide, sudden death, and the loss of a teen or young adult. Caregivers, family members, community volunteers, and healthcare professionals are all welcome.
