The Persons Case Scholarship is now open to help Albertans studying in fields that advance gender equality or who are studying in fields where their gender is underrepresented or disadvantaged.

In 1928, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that women were not “persons.” One year later, that ruling was overturned due to the actions and advocacy of five Albertan women – Emily Murphy, Henrietta Edwards, Nellie McClung, Louise McKinney and Irene Parlby – through the Persons Case. These five women, known as the Famous Five, are credited with the decision to grant women the right to serve in Canada’s Senate. 

The Persons Case Scholarship, now entering its 44th year, honours the spirit and advocacy of the Famous Five. This scholarship supports students enrolled in the arts, humanities and social sciences programs that work to close gender gaps or in areas where their gender is underrepresented.

A total of $100,000 is available through the program and up to 40 students will receive $2,500 each for their studies. Eligible applicants must be Alberta residents registered in undergraduate study at an approved Alberta post-secondary institution or a graduate program in Alberta or elsewhere. Applications close Dec. 8.
