Norah Stephen Oncology Awards
Cancer Care Nova Scotia funds the Norah Stephen Oncology Scholar Awards, student research awards designed to foster an interest in the field of oncology. Each year, 12 awards of $5000 each are presented to students to pursue cancer-related research or clinical training and experience projects. To date, 80 students have received the award and 24 have continued on or have plans to continue on in the field of cancer.

The Norah Stephen Oncology Scholar Awards are named in honour of retired board member Norah Stephen. A cancer survivor and advocate, Norah was a dedicated volunteer with the Nova Scotia cancer system for almost 35 years. Norah passed away in 2008 at the age of 94, but her inspiration lives on through the Norah Stephen Oncology Scholar Awards.
