My Story…

In this pandemic year, I am joining my colleagues in the York University Retirees Association to raise funds to support graduate scholarships. These are challenging times to be starting graduate school, different in so many ways from when we set out on our own academic journeys.  Please help us support a new generation of young scholars.


Please support graduate scholarships at York University by registering to walk or run 5 km in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 18. One of YURA's major activities is raising funds for graduate scholarships. On the day of the race, our volunteers will walk or run as a group, and then meet for lunch. We will have fun, and at the same time help the student community in an impactful and meaningful way through recruiting sponsors. To learn how to register to walk or run on October 18 for YURA, please contact Ian Greene at, or 416-571-8742.
