Mary B. Jordan YVR Scholarship for Women in Business

In recognition of former Chair of the YVR Board of Directors Mary B. Jordan’s impressive 15-year tenure as a board member, and her significant contributions to the airport community, YVR established the Mary B. Jordan YVR Scholarship to support women pursuing a Master's degree in a business-related field in British Columbia.

We share Mary’s belief that greater diversity in the workplace drives innovation and providing people with proper resources allows them to reach their full potential. Each year, YVR will award $20,000 to a student who identifies as a woman and demonstrates outstanding academic achievement, and a passion for diversity, inclusion and community participation.

Jordan YVR Scholarship for Women in Business has had a profound impact on me over the past year. This scholarship not only recognized my academic achievements and supported my MBA studies but also fueled my dedication to lead a purposeful life by engaging in fulfilling work, volunteering within my community, and promoting diversity and inclusion.

Supporting young girls and women in underrepresented fields has long been a passion of mine. Receiving this scholarship has shown me the immense impact such support can have and has further empowered me to continue advocating for women in STEM and leadership roles, in the same meaningful ways I have been supported. This scholarship has reinforced my commitment to creating a more inclusive and diverse environment for future generations. Being a recipient of this scholarship has been an incredible honour and privilege, for which I am extremely grateful."
