The Nancy Salmon Scholarship Fund


Nancy Salmon.


Ms. Salmon was born in England in 1921, and came to Canada at 8 years old. Due to poor vision, she had to leave school at age 16, which she dearly regretted. Through a bequest, Ms. Salmon created the Nancy Salmon Scholarship Fund with the Community Foundation of Mississauga.


$1.3 million initial donation




The Nancy Salmon Scholarship Fund provides grants that ensure young people who experience financial hardship will be able to pursue a university education.


U of T Mississauga Students experiencing financial hardship.


The Nancy Salmon Scholarship Fund provided its first grants in 2014. Since then, the Fund has provided financial assistance to 785 students at U of T Mississauga. Collectively those students have received $498,356 in financial assistance from the Fund.


Over the past nine years, the fund has grown to $1.9 million, and will continue granting to support students in need, in perpetuity.
