The Friends of the University of Alberta Society is proud to write a big cheque to fund the Friends of the University Graduate Award. This award has a total value up to $10,000 over two years. It is awarded to a full-time graduate student based on academic achievement and outstanding community service as demonstrated through research and/or involvement in community engagement and/or volunteer activities. Accepting this cheque from the University of Alberta are: Tracy Raivio (Associate Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies & Research), Ahsan Ahmad (GSA Senator) and Kathy Fitzgerald (Office of Advancement). Presenting the cheque from the Friends of the University of Alberta are: Kate Freeman, Allen Snart, Brent McDonough and Luca Vanzella.
Supporting the Friend’s primary goal to connect the community to the University, we are proud to donate $10,000 to U School. On November 14, 2018, Friends President Kate Freeman presented the cheque to Chancellor Douglas R. Stollery.
You can read more about the goals of The Friends of the University of Alberta and join the friends. We will not be asking you for money, but if you have some time to donate as a casino volunteer or on the board, you would certainly be welcome!
