Nigel Merchant Bursary


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 2

Nigel was an emergency physician at the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax, and later the QEII Health Sciences Centre from 1975 until 2002. He served as chief of the emergency department from 1977-1980.

Nigel lost his life in a car crash at the age of 58. He was a colleague, a business associate, but most of all, he was a friend. He's survived by his wife Joyce and their three children, Clark, Sara and Lee.

Nigel was a laboratory technician before entering Dalhousie Medical School. During his career, he was very active in the education of paramedics and medical first responders.

Following the wishes of his family, a bursary was established in Nigel's name at Dalhousie University. Each year, it's awarded to a student enrolled in medical laboratory technology, and a student enrolled in paramedicine. The awards are for $1,000 each and are based on financial need.
