The WiDS Annual Memorial Scholarship was established in 2006 with a mandate to encourage women to pursue careers related to security and defence in Canada, to provide development opportunities to women in the security and defence fields and to provide financial assistance to further educational objectives of women who are Canadian citizens employed in or pursuing studies related to Canada's defence and security.
