September 26, 2014

The Joyce Foundation has given the University of Windsor a donation of $10 M to create the Ed Lumley Bursary, named in honour of the institution’s Chancellor. The bursary will offer up to $8,000 per year to students in financial need who would otherwise be unable to attend university. In a news release, uWindsor described the bursary as “the most significant student support endowment in uWindsor history.” In recognition of the donation, uWindsor will name its new Wyandotte Street innovation centre The Joyce Entrepreneurship Centre. “We are deeply grateful to Ron Joyce and his foundation, and are indebted to Chancellor Lumley for never forgetting his roots in Windsor-Essex and his belief in the power of education,” said uWindsor President Alan Wildeman. uWindsor News Release
