$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.
“Through the Qualico Bridge to Success Program we will be able to join the University of Manitoba as a partner in Indigenous learning, piloting a new way of supporting Indigenous students as they transition to post-secondary studies,” said Kevin Van, Vice President of Qualico. “We are hoping that the Program will ultimately result in the success of talented, inquisitive students who want to make a difference in our world.”
