Comments from UELAC Scholarship Recipients

“I want to thank the UELAC again for their very generous assistance which allowed me to travel to archives throughout Canada and the United States. Additionally I have been flattered with many kind invitations to speak to branches and share my work in progress, which was always fun and led to some very illuminating discussions.”
– Tim Compeau, UELAC Loyalist Scholar 2008

“Many thanks, again, for your generosity. I cannot wait (!) to get over to Halifax. After visiting Fredericton and the Bay of Fundy, I'm thoroughly looking forward to seeing more of Canada. (I've always got an eye on potential job openings, too...)”
– Christopher Minty, UELAC Loyalist Scholar 2012

“In the 2011-2012 academic year, the support of the UELAC Graduate Scholarship has provided me with the financial flexibility to acquire resources from archives that have costly reproduction or photocopying fees and contribute to the payment of my tuition fees. I am very grateful for the support of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada.”
– Denise McGuire, UELAC Loyalist Scholar 2011

“I have recently been awarded a United Empire Loyalist Scholarship that will enable me to purchase a myriad of source materials, ranging from probate records to Todd Braisted's latest text, Bergen County Voices (2012). This incredibly generous award from the UELAC will therefore enable me to efficiently maximise the efficacy of my current research schedule and enable me to achieve the ambitious goals I have set myself with this Ph.D.”
– Christopher Minty, UELAC Loyalist Scholar 2012
