We are pleased to announce the names of this year’s recipients of the Craig Jury Memorial Summer Studentship in Cancer Research. This endowment fund was established in 2005 through a gift from Mrs. Erma Jury, Arts 1963, in memory of her son Craig, and is awarded on the basis of high academic achievement and a demonstrated interest in cancer research, to a full-time undergraduate student in the Faculty of Health Sciences or the Faculty of Arts and Science to participate in a summer studentship in the Cancer Research Institute at Queen’s University.
