UVic Business Class of 2009 Scholarship

“I’d been reading and learning more on the subject of racial justice for a few years, but the upswelling of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020 was the spark I needed to move from learning to action. As I start to truly recognise my privilege in entering university, I want to help extend that opportunity to a range of students who don’t necessarily look like me, or come from my background. I hope awards like this help the business school become even more of a welcoming space, and help students to feel that doors which historically might have seemed closed are being opened." – Award contributor

The UVic Business Class of 2009 Scholarship has been established to support Peter B. Gustavson School of Business students in the Bachelor of Commerce core program who self-identify as Black, Indigenous or a Person of Colour, as well as students with demonstrated financial need.

Contributors to this award will be impacting BIPOC students in Business directly and supporting UVic’s overall commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.
