Helping more Indigenous students come to study

$1M Donation to Front and Centre campaign creates the Qualico Bridge to success program

Indigenous students will now make a smoother transition from communities across this province to University of Manitoba campuses thanks to a visionary new program supported by real estate company Qualico.

The Qualico Bridge to Success program, supported through $1-million donation to the U of M’s Front and Centre campaign, is positioned to ease the transition of Indigenous (First Nation, Inuit, Métis) students into post-secondary education at the U of M.
