Atlantic Promise Scholars initiative launched by 11 universities, Atlantic Business Magazine

July 7, 2021
11 universities in Atlantic Canada have formed a partnership with the Atlantic Business Magazine to create the Atlantic Promise Scholars initiative. The initiative, which was originally formed by Dalhousie University last year, will provide supports and financial aid to Black and Indigenous students attending each university’s business schools. Other institutions involved in the initiative include Acadia University, Cape Breton University, Memorial University, Mount Allison University, Mount Saint Vincent University, Saint Mary’s University, St Francis Xavier University, Université de Moncton, University of New Brunswick, and the University of Prince Edward Island. “We know that access to a post-secondary education is transformative,” said Kim Brooks, dean of Dal’s Faculty of Management. “It should be accessible to all promising students.” Dal (Atlantic)
