UManitoba receives $2.1M toward full-tuition scholarships, wrap-around supportsĀ 


The University of Manitoba has received a $2.1M gift from alumni Walter and Maria Schroeder to provide full-tuition scholarships and student supports. The gift builds on previous donations from the Schroeders and will help to bolster wrap-around supports such as a three-week summer school program, stipends, and residence accommodations. 92 students at the university will benefit from these scholarships and supports. “We are extraordinarily grateful to Walter and Maria Schroeder for their generous gift and passion for bettering the lives of so many UM students,” said UManitoba President Dr Michael Benarroch.
