Recipient Report 2009/2010
Thousands of students each year benefit from donor-funded awards. Some of those recipients met Western President Amit Chakma on campus this past spring (left to right): Victoria Le, Matthew Pope, Alejandra Ceballos Vasquez,
Kara Dempster, Brendan Dunn (behind Kara), Leanne Lau, Western President Amit Chakma, and Mohammad Hassanzadeh.
More than 3,800 undergraduate and graduate students at The University of
Western Ontario benefited from donor-funded scholarships and bursaries
totaling more than $9.7 million during the 2009/2010 academic year.
As we move forward with our fundraising efforts, we will be announcing a major
new scholarship program and look forward to sharing this with you in the
coming months.
I am pleased to present the Western Student Awards Recipient Report where
inside you’ll find stories about how highly gifted and motivated students are
fulfilling their ambitions thanks to the generosity of donors.
Thank you again for your support for student awards and for partnering
with Western in helping educate the next generation of global citizens
and leaders.
Through our academic and extra-curricular activities, Western is developing
future leaders for Canada and the world. The investment in student awards by
alumni, friends, corporations, foundations and members of the campus
community ensures Western continues to attract the top undergraduate and
graduate students regardless of their financial circumstances.

For many students, scholarships, awards and bursaries serve as an introduction
to the world of philanthropy and its power to positively impact people’s lives.
With the realization that alumni, friends and organizations have made an
investment in support of their education, students pursue their academic goals
with renewed drive and determination. Experiencing philanthropy first hand
inspires today’s students to follow in the footsteps of Western’s generous donors
and make similar investments for the benefit of future generations.
Western’s undergraduate award programs are designed to increase access to
the best student experience among Canada’s leading research-intensive
universities. Western maintains a fundamental commitment to ensure that no
undergraduate student will be denied access or the ability to complete a degree
because of financial need. For Western students in all programs across campus,
receiving a scholarship, award or bursary can mean many things: an easing of
financial obligations, motivation to achieve academic excellence, and
recognition of hard work.
The students who receive these awards are well-rounded citizens who not
only excel academically but are also involved in local and community activities.
Preparing students for global leadership is one of Western’s strategic mandates
and, together with donors like you, we are able to support students in their
goals and aspirations. This in turn allows us to support our communities both
locally and internationally. Your contributions, through annual donations and
endowments, ensure that in many years to come, students are able to achieve
their academic pursuits.

Alejandra Ceballos Vasquez thought she would have to abandon her education
to be a good mother.
“I knew coming back to school was a great decision, but it was conflicting with
what I love the most, my family,” says Columbia-native, Alejandra, who came to
Canada with her husband and first son in 2001. After having another son, she
completed her OAC courses and was accepted into Western, while continuing to
work to help support her family.
Alejandra thought there was a mistake at first. Once she got over the shock, she
realized because of the significant scholarship, she could quit her job while
continuing to pursue her university education.
“Thanks to this scholarship, I am going to be able to finally finish my studies and I
will be able to provide a better future for my children,” says Alejandra. “I can’t wait
for the day I can give back to society what I have been given - hope. I have been
shown that dreams come true.”
“I had been working night shifts, but it was hard for my two children and my
husband because we had very little time to spend as a family. It was very hard on
me because I felt guilty and selfish.”
“Now, I can stay for my kids’ soccer practices and games, we can have dinner
together, I can read to them before they go to bed, the list goes on and on. It has
allowed us to enjoy family time again.”
Then Alejandra found out she was selected for a $15,000 Heaslip Scholarship.
Awarded to full-time undergraduate students entering second year of any
four-year degree program, it is based on academic achievement and financial
need. These scholarships will continue up to three years, provided that the
recipients maintain a full course load and a 70 per cent average, and
demonstrate financial need each year. These scholarships are made
possible by Nona Heaslip and the late William Heaslip.
Alejandra plans to finish her Honours Specialization in Conservation Biology,
then either pursue Veterinary school or a Masters in Animal Welfare and

Dayna stands outside the University of Leeds in the U.K., holding a thank you sign for the donors of her award, Hank and Anne Vander Laan.
Dayna Jablecki is amazed that people she never met gave her the keys to
the door of discovery.
mean the difference of whether or not a student can participate in an
exchange program.
“I always have had big dreams and will continue to have them, but the
realization that complete strangers also believed in my dream and my abilities
to make them happen has made all the difference to me,” says Dayna, who
plans to attend the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders after
completing her undergraduate degree. “Through these donors’ actions I am
encouraged to help other dreamers reach their goals.
“It is through the altruistic actions of sponsors and donors, that exchange
students, who dream of making a difference in the world, can utilize the
gifts of their education and exchange experience to their fullest potential,”
she says. “I can’t thank the Vander Laans enough for the generous scholarship.
It allowed me to experience an unforgettably fantastic journey.”
“My exchange opportunity changed my life,” says Dayna who spent a year at
the University of Leeds in the U.K. “The world needs a proactive response to
improve world understanding and promote harmony. The International
Exchange Program provides an answer by offering an opportunity to
become a global citizen who is globally literate. From my exchange
experience, I gained a new perspective on global issues and world affairs
that I will keep forever.”
Dayna believes the international exchange program is a terrific way for
students to combine their academic interests with their studies. However,
exchange and school are both expensive and sometimes a donation will
The Sun Light Foundation International Exchange Award was established by
a gift from Hank and Anne Vander Laan in 2003. The $2,000 award is given
annually to students registered at Western who are participating in an
approved exchange program at an international university. Selection is based
on academic achievement and the candidate’s fitness as an ambassador
of Western.
When I left for exchange my goal as a Canadian was to be transformed and
also be empowered by the world. Now that I have returned to Canada, my goal
is to utilize that empowerment to transform the world.”

Matthew Pope is studying his life’s passion at Western.
The piano performance student says because of the generous Daria Telizyn
Piano Scholarship, he has greater confidence in himself to pursue his dreams
and has had the opportunity to study under an amazing teacher. He says the
$4,625 scholarship allowed him to relax a little in his first year knowing the
financial stress was partially alleviated.
“There is so much to figure out before starting university such as picking
courses, finding a place to live, finding where everything is on campus, but the
most important thing to figure out is how to pay for it,” says Matthew.
He notes the scholarship has been a blessing to him in so many ways and says
there are so many young people out there who have big dreams and
ambitious goals like him, but without the means of being able to pursue them.
“Young people like me are the leaders of tomorrow and it is important that
people recognize this and invest in us, the future,” says Matthew.
The Daria Telizyn Piano Scholarship is awarded to a piano student entering the
first year of study in a Bachelor of Music degree program with exceptional
academic standing, who through the audition process demonstrates
exemplary performance talent and promise. This scholarship is open to
international students as well as Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
Preference will be given to international students from the Ukraine when
selecting among equally qualified candidates. The Chair of the Ukrainian
Studies Foundation made this generous pledge in the spirit of its mandate
to promote Ukrainian students and Ukrainian studies across Canada. The
scholarship was named in honour of Ukrainian Canadian pianist Daria
Telizyn, BMus’81, whose unsurpassed concert performances took her to
venues throughout North America and Europe. The Western alumna died
on March 21, 2005 at the age of 44, following a series of illnesses.
After Matthew graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in Music Mathew
plans to continue to follow his passion and pursue a Master’s degree
and ultimately have a career as a performer, as both a pianist
and conductor.

Kara Dempster says her undergraduate experience was a juggling act, but now
as a medical student at Western she has found more balance.
Kara believes student scholarship donations are imperative to promoting equal
educational opportunities for all deserving young minds.
This is in large part due to The Ellen Tiedje Memorial Award she received this
past year.
“There are so many capable young people that are never given the opportunity
to reach their full potential,” she notes. “Financial assistance is one way that may
help such students pursue their academic goals without barriers. I feel so lucky to
have been given financial support while in pursuit of my academic goals. My
donor has not only made a huge contribution to me personally, but also to my
future patients and colleagues. I will never ever forget any assistance given to me
on my path towards becoming a doctor and I intend to pay this generosity
forward in the future.”
“Receiving this award has removed a huge amount of financial stress from my life
and has granted me the time, space, and energy to throw myself fully into my
medical education,” says Kara who completed her undergraduate degree in Nova
Scotia. “Without the added stress of having to earn money on top of pursuing
academic excellence, not only have I been able to reach my highest potential in
classroom activities, I have had more time for extracurricular learning
opportunities. Most importantly however, as a future health care professional,
the financial assistance has given me the liberty to take care of myself, both
mentally and physically. Without having to juggle employment and academics, I
have a bit more time to pursue personal interests, work out, and get some sleep.”
The Ellen Tiedje Memorial Award is awarded to a full-time undergraduate
student entering the first year of the Doctor of Medicine program, based on
outstanding academic achievement, and demonstrated financial need. The
$5,000 award was established by John and Dorothy Tiedje through Foundation
Western in memory of their daughter, Ellen, a Medicine ‘74 graduate who was
killed in a car accident in 1975 with her husband, Harry Butterfield.
Kara hopes to practice pediatric psychiatry upon graduation.
“I have a marked interest in mental health advocacy and treatment and I think
that the role of preventative strategies for treatable mental health conditions, as
well as improvements in public awareness of the subject and research into the
area will increase substantially in years to come facilitating a rewarding,
interesting, and sustainable career.”

Agnes and Carl Santoni were delighted to meet the recipient of the Carl and Agnes Santoni Graduate Scholarship in Mathematics, Mohammad Hassanzadeh (middle) during a recent visit to campus.
Mohammad Hassanzadeh believes graduate studies is the centre of all
important research and receiving support will help students change our world.
The recent Western graduate says the Carl and Agnes Santoni Graduate
Scholarship in Mathematics helped him financially and academically in his
pursuits at Western. The Scholarship is awarded to a full-time graduate student
who is in the Masters or Doctoral Graduate Program in Mathematics based on
academic achievement and research merit. The Santoni’s established this
scholarship to support a student specializing in Mathematics who was holding
an Ontario Graduate Scholarship in Science and Technology. This allows for the
Santoni’s donation of $5,000 to be matched 2 to 1 by the Provincial Government
for a total scholarship of $15,000.
“Being able to use this scholarship allowed me to cut my Tutorial Assistant
duties in half,” notes Mohammad. “This allowed me to focus and make great
progress in my research and other academic affairs.”
Carl and Agnes are both Faculty of Science graduates, so they say donating to
Science was a natural choice for them.
“Math is the common link between the sciences and we got the sense that the
Department of Mathematics is often overlooked in gift giving,” says Carl “We
have a great deal of admiration for post graduate students studying math and
wish to acknowledge their dedication and hard work with an OGS scholarship.
Our hope is for the recipients to be successful in their studies and to pass their
knowledge and enthusiasm for math along to others.”
Agnes adds, “We don’t think our modest philanthropy will in itself have any
measurable impact, however, if everyone does a little, the impact will be
there over the years. It’s all about having some faith that your positive efforts
will be compounded.”
Mohammad says the scholarship was very important to him and he felt
honoured to meet his donors and thank them personally.
“Carl and Agnes Santoni are great people and I will never forget them.
Canada should be proud of these beautiful people and how they are
helping graduate studies and research in one of the most classical fields:
mathematics. The only thing that I can do to reward their kindness is to
study hard with the ultimate goal to make great achievements for our
society and country.”
Mohammad graduated with his PhD in August and is excited to have
started postdoctoral research in September.

Athletic scholarships, awards and bursaries help attract outstanding studentathletes to Western where they can develop leadership and teamwork skills,
and experience the merits of goal setting and achievement. The financial
support students receive ensures they have the time, energy and resources
to pursue greatness in their sport and in their academic pursuits.
At Western, we have set a goal to raise $4-million to support the Western
Mustangs Athletic Financial Awards program. The program funds athletic
scholarships which will support student-athletes by creating the opportunity
for them to receive $3,500 over four years.
The Mustangs Scholarship Breakfast is a fundraising event to support the
Western Mustangs Athletic Financial Awards program. Proceeds from the event
are invested into the Fund and in return the awards help Western to nurture
and produce exceptional student-athletes; the global leaders of tomorrow.

Brendan Dunn with his proud parents, Mike and Tanya.
Brendan Dunn says receiving the Nash Family Football Athletic Scholarship
combined with the opportunity to get a degree from Western is what kept
him in Canada to pursue his degree.
“Since athletic scholarships were introduced to the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity
Sport) and OUA (Ontario University Athletics) three years ago, Canadian
athletes have been given the opportunity to develop their passion for athletics
as well as attain a quality education at institutions like Western,” says Brendan
who is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology. “Thanks to the
generous donation, this scholarship, has allowed me the opportunity to excel
in my athletic career as well as my studies.”
Prior to the OUA’s motion to grant athletic financial awards, student-athletes
with high academic averages had no athletic award opportunities in
Ontario. The Nash Family Football Athletic Scholarship was created in 2007
and is awarded to a student entering first year of any full-time undergraduate
degree program at Western, who is a member of the Mustangs Football team
and excels academically. The Nash Family established this $3,500 scholarship
at Foundation Western, in recognition of the retirement of Western’s head
football coach Larry Haylor.
Western has a goal to raise $4 million for Mustang Scholarships over the next
four years, creating an endowment fund that will generate annual income in
support of Mustang student-athletes in perpetuity. Athletic Scholarships will
help recipients with the cost of education, allow Western to compete with
other CIS schools in recruiting the best student-athletes, and allow the
university to continue building strong, competitive teams.
Standing at six feet eight inches, Brendan plays the offensive tackle position
on the Mustangs Varsity Football team. He says he has been thrilled to be an
ambassador for the University as they travel from city to city to play other
football teams.
After completing his undergraduate degree, Brendan would like to pursue
podiatry, a branch of medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis and
treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower leg. Brendan notes
that he would be persuaded to put his podiatry aspirations on hold if
the opportunity to play in the CFL materializes.
“That would be a dream come true, playing the sport I love so much,

Victoria Le (left) and Leanne Lau (right) appreciated meeting Professor Emeritus Elaine Bjorklund, for whom the award they received is named.
Leanne Lau and Victoria Le both say they felt honoured to receive The Professor
Elaine Bjorklund Awards and feel truly privileged to meet the woman for whom
the award is named. Each received $1,250 to help with their studies in the
Department of Geography.
The award was established through Foundation Western by a generous gift from
Hong Kong native Cecilia Yau (BA’72) in 1999, in honour of Geography Professor
Emeritus Elaine Bjorklund. With additional funding from Cecilia in 2007, today
two awards are given out annually to undergraduate or graduate students in the
Geography program in the Faculty of Social Science.
“The academic environment at Western has provided an excellent and
comprehensive platform for me to explore different academic aspects,” notes
Leanne who is from Hong Kong and graduated this year with an Honors
Specialization in Geographic Information Science. She hopes to become a pilot or
a surveyor. “Student scholarships reward students for their hard work and
encourage students to explore different academic interests so as to allow them to
develop a more comprehensive skill set. This support is very important in
enhancing students’ life at Western.”
Victoria who grew up in London says the award allowed her to meet the costs of a
university education without having to heavily rely on student loans.
“My ambitions require a lot of education and subsequently a lot of money,” says
Victoria, who graduated with an Honors Bachelor of Science in Geography. “My
short-term goal is to complete a Master’s degree in health geography and in the
future I hope to attend medical school. Student scholarship donations are
incredibly important to recognize outstanding students who make an impact on
campus and in the community.”
Leanne and Victoria are both outstanding examples of how donor support helps
students realize their potential at Western.
The term “awards” is often used to refer to a grouping of scholarships, awards and bursaries.
University Policy 2.10 defines the use of these titles as follows:
AWARD: A monetary payment given
on the basis of a combination of
academic and nonacademic criteria.
Normally, a minimum “B” (70%)
average is required for undergraduate
students and a minimum 78% average
is required for graduate students.
BURSARY: A monetary award/
payment based primarily on
demonstrated financial need.
SCHOLARSHIP: A monetary award
having a fixed minimum value, based
on general academic excellence
(normally a minimum “A” (80%)
average), or on excellence in a
specific subject or group of subjects,
and in some cases also on nonacademic criteria. At the graduate
level the minimum average for these
scholarships is 78%.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the Student Awards Recipient Report, which lists all
awards given out during the 2009/2010 academic year (September 2009 to mid-June 2010). Not all established awards are
given out every year, based on the availability of qualified recipients who meet the terms of the award or other
circumstances. Similarly, awards intended for multiple recipients may also not be given out in full number.
For the purposes of this publication, students have the option to maintain their privacy by requesting anonymity. Such
requests have been honoured through the listing of “anonymous recipients.”
If you would like additional information or have questions about a student award you established, please contact the
Department of Alumni Relations & Development.
Western students are extremely grateful to benefit from donor support and all student award recipients
are encouraged to prepare a thank you letter to the donor of their award. The Department of Alumni
Relations & Development is pleased to forward all letters received to donors or award contacts.
If you would like to meet the recipient of the award you have established, please contact the Department of
Alumni Relations & Development to determine if a meeting is possible. Most students are pleased to meet the
donors who established their awards and welcome the opportunity to express their appreciation in person.
