TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR AN ENDOWED FUND

NAME OF ENDOWED FUND (OSOTF [1] )

John Spencer Hill English Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

John Spencer Hill was a much-loved colleague and teacher in the Department of English at the University of Ottawa. Professor Hill was an active scholar in Renaissance and Romantic studies and also an accomplished writer of mystery novels. During his years at the University, he served as both Graduate Director and Chair of the English Department - thereby becoming acutely aware of the financial needs of students in the Department. Given his enormous popularity as an instructor, it is most fitting that a scholarship fund intended to aid English students financially should be named in his honour. The founding donors thank the Alumni Association of the University of Ottawa and the Government of Ontario for their matching contributions.

PURPOSE OF FUND

To provide financial assistance to students in the Department of English whose education would otherwise be compromised.
