Trent University has received a $2.5M gift from the Joyce Family Foundation which will be used to create an endowed bursary fund. The Joyce Family Foundation Bursary Endowment Fund will support undergraduate students who are facing socio-economic barriers to achieving a postsecondary education, with preference given to students from Peterborough, Durham Region, and Haliburton County. Recipients will receive funding, which is renewable for up to four years, and will work with a mentor throughout their program. “This gift, which creates our largest fund for student aid, greatly enhances Trent University’s ability to support students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to pursue post-secondary education,” said Trent President Dr Leo Groarke.
