Eligibility In memory of Marion Saydak, her husband Alan and their children, Megan and Patrick, have established a scholarship fund at the University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has also made a contribution to this fund. Marion received a diploma in Nursing from Winnipeg General Hospital in 1974. Although she worked as a nurse after that time, Marion pursued her love of learning and keen interest in academics by earning a Bachelor of Nursing degree (1985) and her Master of Nursing degree (1991) from the University of Manitoba. Marionís career was long and varied. She held positions at Health Sciences Centre and at St. Boniface Hospital in areas of labour and delivery and maternal and infant care. At the University of Manitoba, Marion held positions as a Research Assistant, Faculty Advisor, and Lecturer. In 1992, she pursued another avenue in her career path, taking on a position with Manitoba Health, where she remained until her passing in 2000. At Manitoba Health, Marion was involved in the areas of palliative care, long term care, and womenís health, to name a few. She was the recipient of many awards and honours, including the Canadian Nursing Fellowship, and she was involved in many professional organizations, such as the Canadian Nurses Foundation, Canadian Association for the History of Nursing, and the Faculty of Nursing Alumni Association.
