BrandonU receives gift from outgoing premier for student awards

September 1, 2021
Brandon University has received a gift from Government of Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister, an alumnus of the university. The gift will be used for the endowment of two new scholarships: One scholarship will be for male student-athletes, while the other will be for students who have come to BrandonU to finish joint programs with Assiniboine Community College. The funds will also increase the value of entrance scholarships that were previously established by Pallister. “There’s no better feeling than knowing you have changed the life of a student,” said BrandonU President Dr David Docherty. “It’s a reason so many people love being teachers and academics, and also why so many of our alumni and donors give so generously to support the Brandon University mission.” BrandonU | Brandon Sun (MB)
