At the School of Continuing Studies, we ensure that hardworking and deserving adult learners have an opportunity to pursue their studies, improve their knowledge and skills, and transform their careers and their lives.
Fall 2012 was a real milestone for the School. For the first time, we presented 30 students with scholarships to recognize their academic achievement. These scholarships were donor funded and made a big difference in the lives of deserving learners.
In November 2012, the School held its first scholarship reception, pairing up award recipients with donors. Dean Potter reflects on the event: “The support goes beyond financial recognition; it also provides Continuing Studies’ students with a sense of belonging and a feeling of being a part of McGill.”
Donors in the Spotlight
A lack of financial resources should not pose a barrier to a talented student’s academic pursuits to help them to achieve their career goals. With the help of generous donors, we provide financial support to students to ensure their success.
