Mary B. Jordan YVR Scholarship for Women in Business

Mary B. Jordan, former Chair of the YVR Board of Directors, presided over a period of unprecedented growth for the airport. In recognition of Mary’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 business studies 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 female or female-identified student who demonstrates outstanding academic achievement, and a passion for diversity, inclusion and community participation.

Am I Eligible?

Eligible students must be:

  • A Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada.
  • Female or female-identified student who has maintained a minimum CGPA of 3.25 (based on a 4.0 scale) in the previous year of study and is in good academic standing.
  • Enrolled full-time in the third, fourth, or fifth year of a Baccalaureate Business program OR the first year of a Master’s degree program.
  • Demonstrate strong leadership and teamwork skills, community participation and/or involvement on or off campus, including an interest or participation in sports.

The scholarship is non-renewable and will only be awarded to an individual once.
