December 13, 2012

A $2.5-million bequest from Shirley Cooper is supporting a new bursary program at the University of New Brunswick. The J. Roy and Shirley L. Cooper Bursaries provide students with tuition for one year and are renewable. The bursaries are awarded on the basis of financial need to students who have earned at least an overall "B" average in their previous academic year in an undergraduate degree program. The bursaries are open to all faculties with the exception of the Faculty of Arts. UNB News
