Nipissing University has received a $1M donation from the George and Helen Vari Foundation to establish two new funds. The George and Helen Vari BIPOC Student Scholarship and Bursary Fund will provide financial support to students who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Colour. The George and Helen Vari Simulation Fund will support programming at Nipissing’s future Simulation Centre, where the university intends to name two simulation labs after the donors. “This type of support changes lives,” said Nipissing President Kevin Wamsley. “It improves access to education and enhances the student experience, ensuring our students are able to reach their full potential and give back to society in a meaningful way.” Nipissing Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
