The University of King’s College (Halifax) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the PREP Academy to engage and support African Nova Scotian students. PREP works to eliminate systemic barriers facing African Nova Scotians and offers pathway programs for high school students in the province. Effective this summer, U of King’s College and PREP will collaborate to raise the profile of the university’s programs among African Nova Scotian communities. The university also announced that it will allocate a minimum of $7.5K per year in scholarships for incoming PREP students and waive their application and registration fees. U of King’s College President William Lahey said that this MOU is part of the university’s ongoing commitment to the Scarborough Charter.
