CIBC Mentoring Scholarship
A generous one-million-dollar endowment fund provided by the CIBC in 2004 allows SASS to honour a number of student mentors for their strong dedication and leadership in the student mentoring and to present an award that can reach $4,500.
“We are especially proud to support this mentoring program. Helping young people to reach their full potential is a strategic focus of our community investment program. Through CIBC Youth Vision we fund hundreds of initiatives that support education, mentoring and skills development,”
“In an increasingly competitive global economy, it is so important that young people complete their education, and the mentoring provided through the university's Student Academic Success Service is proving successful in addressing the issue of student retention.”
