TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR AN ENDOWED FUND  

TITLE OF ENDOWED FUND

Eva Princz Memorial Travel Fund

INTRODUCTION

This fund was set up in the memory of Eva Princz, a graduate student in the Biochemistry program at the University of Ottawa. Eva graduated with a B.Sc in physics from the University of British Columbia. Once her three daughters, Gyula, Katalina, and Juliska, were in school, Eva enrolled in the Biochemistry graduate program working under the supervision of Ian Smith at the National Research Council of Canada. Her project was focused on the use of magnetic resonance techniques for cancer diagnoses. Eva had a son, Daniel, partway through her graduate studies.  Eva completed her M.Sc. degree in July, 1998. She died tragically in a car accident on July 15, 1989. Eva is remembered for her hard work, dedication to her family, and her wonderful, warm, and engaging personality. The endowment for the fund was established with contributions from the National Research Council, the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and fellow students and colleagues at both sites.

 

PURPOSE OF FUND

To support graduate student travel to scientific meetings. Any of the costs associated with attending a meeting can be applied for (travel, registration, meals and hotels). However, it is assumed that funds to cover some of the costs will be obtained elsewhere.
