The CFUW North Bay Dr. Diana Walton Scholarship will provide a $1,000 scholarship for 15 consecutive years, beginning in the fall of 2022 and continuing up to and including the fall of 2036.
Recipients of this scholarship will be North Bay and Area women who are continuing their full-time studies within the Faculty of Arts and Science at Nipissing University, and who exhibit excellent leadership skills, strong work ethic, compassion, perseverance, and financial need.
Dr. Diana Walton was a CFUW North Bay Scholarship recipient herself in 1962, when she graduated from Chippewa Secondary School and began her undergraduate degree at Queen’s University. In May 2001, Diana Walton later served as a keynote speaker at CFUW North Bay’s 60th anniversary dinner. Her support and enthusiasm resulted in new members joining the organization the following September, according to a media release issued by Nipissing University.
