Saint Mary’s University has received $2 M from the Joyce Foundation to create the Joyce Foundation Bursaries Fund, which will help pay for the educations of Nova Scotia students with demonstrated financial need. A major portion of the gift will be dedicated to students attending SMU’s Fred Smithers Centre of Support for Students with Disabilities. “Saint Mary’s has a tradition of inclusiveness and student support that dates back more than 200 years,” said SMU President Robert Summerby-Murray, who added that “this generous donation from The Joyce Foundation enhances our ability to meet the financial needs of students, helping us achieve our goal of ensuring that university education is accessible to all academically-qualified students in Nova Scotia.” SMU
