The Herb Stovel Scholarship Fund is administered by the National Trust in cooperation with a professional advisory committee.
Jonathan Weller, an MA student at the University of Victoria, B.C., is the recipient of a $2,000 project bursary to attend the 2016 University of Massachusetts Center for Heritage and Society conference and present a paper on the cultural landscapes of the Southern Gulf Islands of B.C.
