December 16, 2020
MacEwan University has received a $1M legacy gift from an anonymous donor. The endowed gift will be used to fund the Larissa Bursary, a bursary for students in MacEwan’s Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts programs who are majoring or minoring in computer science. The bursary is meant to enable students who are having financial trouble to finish their program. “We are incredibly grateful for this thoughtful and generous donation,” said Melike Schalomon, dean of MacEwan’s Faculty of Arts and Science. “These bursaries will make a real difference in the lives of students who are struggling financially to complete their studies, and make it easier for them to go on to contribute to the field of computer science in a meaningful way.” MacEwan (AB)
