Entrance Scholarship

This award offers an additional $500 to the financial value of the Renison University College Entrance Scholarship.

Note 2

If a student withdraws or otherwise fails to complete the term(s) covered by an award, the award will be prorated.

The Rita Lee-Chui International Education Fund exists to support studentsโ€™ international education experiences connected to Renison degree courses and programs through the allocation of a travel bursary. Students participating in international travel related to Renison degree course or programs are eligible. Apply to The Rita Lee-Chui International Education Fund 

Rita Lee-Chui (1915-2016) was a long time supporter of Renison. Her legacy at the College includes the Florence Li Tim-Oi Memorial Award and the Florence Li Tim-Oi Memorial Reading Room in Renison's library, both named in honour of her sister, The Rev. Florence Li Tim-Oi, the first woman in the world ordained an Anglican priest.

For her commitment to Renison and support of its students, as well as for her passion for travel and education, Renison named this international education fund for Rita as a memorial to her efforts and generosity.
