Help break down barriers for Indigenous students

Susan Jensen has been a student, professor, and the first female Chair in the Department of Biological Sciences. Reflecting on her career, she was inspired to support students in a new way with the Susan Jensen Indigenous Support Fund. The fund is the first of its kind in the Faculty of Science, supporting Indigenous students via undergraduate scholarships, bursaries, and fees for equipment and conferences as they pursue their science education.
