Volunteers raise over $3M for new UPEI scholarships

A group of volunteers at the University of Prince Edward Island, led by UPEI Chancellor Catherine Callbeck and philanthropist John Bragg, has raised over $3M in funding for the Alexander Bradshaw Campbell Entrance Scholarships. The scholarships are given to incoming first-year students from PEI high schools. The funds were raised over three years with an original goal of raising $1M. “These entrance awards are pivotal in helping the University to reduce the barriers for Prince Edward Island high school students who have high academic standing, wish to pursue a post-secondary education, and are in need of financial support,” said UPEI Interim President Dr Greg Keefe.
