THE SCHULICH ANNUAL FUND
The Schulich Annual Fund is the annual fundraising campaign for the Schulich School of Business. Each year Schulich alumni, from across the globe, make gifts to the School that will be expended during the same fiscal year to enhance the Schulich learning environment, provide increased student financial aid, invest in innovative faculty and student research and other immediate priorities. The Schulich Annual Fund consists of two giving designations:
Schulich's Highest Priorities
In an era of constant growth and change, Schulich must be able to effectively respond to critical needs and capitalize on new opportunities as they arise. Gifts in support of Schulich’s Highest Priorities are the best way to ensure your annual contribution helps the School where it is most needed. Examples include: enhancing the Schulich learning environment with new technology, special programs and guest lectures; investments in pioneering research and national and international student competitions; and providing expanded alumni services. Gifts to the School’s Highest Priorities allow the Schulich School to maintain its competitive advantage and top global rankings.
Student Financial Aid
Gifts in support of Student Financial Aid are critical to the School’s future success. To attract and retain the world’s best and brightest undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students, the School must be able to offer extensive financial aid which benefits both incoming and continuing students who have financial need. Your annual support will ensure that Schulich students receive all the financial support they need to achieve excellence in their studies.
Schulich faculty are amongst the leading scholars in their chosen fields. Our faculty continue to be recognized both in Canada and abroad for excellence in research, as well as for the impact of their teaching. Funding for Chairs, Professorships and Lectureships will help our faculty to achieve the highest level of research excellence and ensure Schulich continues as one of the preeminent Schools for leading edge business research in the world. Endowed Chairs and Professorships help us to attract faculty with an international reputation for quality teaching and research, who can share their expertise of the latest developments in their field of study.
STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS, AWARDS AND BURSARIES
Lack of sufficient funds is often the biggest obstacle faced by students wanting to attend university. The need today is greater than ever as dwindling public support for higher education has driven tuition and fees higher and higher. For many students, scholarships are the deciding factor in whether they can attend the School, and funding them is one of the School’s greatest needs. This type of support helps the School to recruit the best students in the world for our programs. Contact us for more information on establishing a scholarship or award at the School.
