Campaign Update

Front and Centre

More than 17,000 alumni have already supported the Front and Centre campaign, and together are making a significant difference in the lives of students like Rebecca Kunzman. "Four years ago my life changed forever when I received a Leaders of Tomorrow scholarship," says Kunzman, who is also the vice-president advocacy for the University of Manitoba Students’ Union. "Before getting this scholarship, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. It was the most influential factor in staying right here in Winnipeg, my home." Watch this short video which shows the impact that scholarships and bursaries have on the lives of our students.
