UNB receives $1M donation from Harrison McCain Foundation to support young scholars


The University of New Brunswick has received a $1M donation from the Harrison McCain Foundation. The funds will go towards the Harrison McCain Young Scholars Awards, which provide eligible new or recently hired faculty members with $25K to help them establish their academic careers at UNB. The funds can be used for research projects, additional studies, travel equipment, and more. “This [commitment] allows UNB to continue to make strategic investments in the research of our newest and brightest academics, those who have chosen to make UNB and New Brunswick their home,” said UNB President Dr Paul J Mazerolle. “These scholars, in turn, bring a dedication and enthusiasm that inspires our students, their colleagues and the entire university.”
