New Partnership with McMaster University

By April 9, 2019Uncategorized

 

We are proud to announce a new on-going partnership with McMaster University!

This new partnership will recognize the community contributions of Columbia International College students who are entering their studies at McMaster University.  8 new scholarships of $5,000 each, will be awarded to CIC students who are graduating in 2018-2019, and are starting their undergraduate studies at McMaster University in 2019-2020.  These scholarships will be jointly funded by the Columbia International Scholarship Endowment Fund and McMaster University and will continue each year.

Columbia International College and McMaster University have had a longstanding partnership in education, philanthropy and community involvement.  CIC students have been annually receiving acceptances to study at McMaster University, and have been volunteering at McMaster’s Children’s Hospital for more than 7 years.  CIC students have also helped raise close to $100,000 through CIC fundraisers and the hospital’s walk-a-thon!  This new scholarship will recognize the incredible achievements of Columbia International College students who continue to serve their communities and will set them up for success as they go on to new beginnings.

Thank you McMaster University!
