USB kicks off new fundraising campaign

October 25, 2013

Manitoba's Université de Saint-Boniface this week launched a new 2013-14 fundraising campaign, “Proud of Our University,” and welcomed a $100,000 donation from USB alumnus Marcel André Desautels to kick off the campaign. The overall campaign goal is $700,000, which will fund scholarships to promote academic excellence and bursaries for those with financial need. The university has also started a scholarship fund specifically for students who apply to the new co-operative program in the Faculty of Science. “Competition is stiff in the higher education market and a generous student aid package will help us to retain young people here while attracting the best students from elsewhere,” stated Development Office Director Gisèle Barnabé. USB News Release
