Faculty of Management Scholarship Fundraising Dinner

Each year the Faculty of Management and its Advisory Board acknowledge the contributions and citizenry of an outstanding member of our community through the Management Scholarship Fundraising Dinner. An honouree is selected in recognition of their leadership, achievement, commitment to the community of Southern Alberta and dedication to the University of Lethbridge.

Through your support of the Dinner, a scholarship fund in the name of the honouree will be established. Proceeds from this fund will be used to provide deserving students with financial support that will assist them in attaining their educational goals through a scholarship(s) awarded annually. To date, more than $1.3 million has been raised for Faculty of Management student scholarships through this event.
