W.J. Lyle Memorial Scholarship
Established as a memorial to Mr. W.J. (Bill) Lyle, former Deputy Minister of Medical and Hospital Programs. Mr. Lyle’s civil service career spanned 54 years, and he played a key role in implementing the hospital insurance system in BC. The scholarship fund was organized by the BC Health Association and BC Ministry of Health employees, and supplemented by generous contributions from the Mr. & Mrs. PA Woodward Foundation and the Government of BC.
The scholarship is awarded to a student in the Master of Health Administration Program, Faculty of Graduate Studies, who has demonstrated academic ability and is deemed likely to contribute to improve planning, organization, management or governance in the health care fields. Upon completion of all first year course requirements a student is eligible for the Lyle Scholarship if he or she has achieved a first class (80%) average in the first year “core” courses.
