The Danielle Nacu Scholarship



Danielle Nacu led a full and inspirational life. While working on her second undergraduate degree at the University of Ottawa, she worked for Citizenship and Immigration Canada as a senior program advisor and volunteered with a number of local organizations in Ottawa.


A conscientious environmentalist, Danielle travelled locally by bicycle. Tragically her life ended prematurely on Tuesday, October 11, 2011, in her 34th year following a bicycle accident.


Her family, friends, colleagues and concerned citizens would like to honour Danielle’s life by providing other deserving students with financial support to assist them with their studies and ensuring her legacy continues forward through their lives.
