The Asper Foundation creates unprecedented new entrance bursary

The Asper Foundation has announced a $5-million gift to the University of Manitoba designed to remove barriers for students demonstrating financial need.

The generous donation made through the Front and Centre Campaign will establish The Asper Foundation Entrance Bursary, the first of its kind at UM. Unlike existing bursary programs, this entrance bursary will be available to students pursuing studies in any faculty or school. Each year, it will provide up to 200 undergraduate students enrolling at UM with a $1,000 entrance bursary.
