November 27, 2007

The University of Manitoba is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its most successful donor award matching program.  The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative (MSBI) was launched in 1997, and has "far exceeded expectations."  With the government matching all donations, many donors upped their contributions.  $21 million has been committed by the province to leverage $53.1 million in private sector support of student aid.
