Henderson Award in International Development Fund
Dr. John & Joyce Henderson, RN have created an award to recognize students studying in the field of international health and community development.
They wanted to be able to benefit the communities of the Shuswap while also perpetuating their vision of a safer, healthier life for disadvantaged people around the world. By establishing the Henderson Award in International Development Fund with the Shuswap Community Foundation, and designating the income from the fund to be awarded each year to an undergraduate or graduate student at UBC’s Okanagan campus studying international health or who is involved in international community development initiatives, they accomplished both goals.
The fund contributes to the Capital Fund of the Foundation, and allows an annual award of $1,000 to be given to a qualifying student chosen by the Faculty of Health and Social Development at UBC Okanagan.
