(Thunder Bay – November 17, 2006) Scholarships encourage students to continue to excel, and Lakehead University is reaching out to the community to ask them to help students reach their academic goals.
Over the next three years, the Lakehead University Scholarship Campaign is aiming to raise $6-million for scholarships. A scholarship is a way of recognizing academic achievement while providing financial assistance to students.
"Scholarships help our students to realise their undergraduate and graduate potentials, and encourage high-ranking students to come to Lakehead University," says Dr. Fred Gilbert, President. "This campaign is a chance for people to give to the University in a way that has a direct and important impact on students."
"We are appealing to our community to support the students of Lakehead University," says Bonnie Moore, Director of Development at the University. "It’s through the involvement from businesses, families, and alumni that the Scholarship Campaign will be successful. We welcome anyone in the community to call our office to find out how they can be a part in helping students reach their full academic potential."
