Please consider these scholarships in your charitable giving. Donations in any amount are welcome, UVic will provide a tax receipt. Your contributions will help the next generation succeed at a critical time in their careers.

The awards are $2000 each, with the number of awards depending on annual donations and income from the capital. The value of the endowments are approximately $30,000, $100,000 and $70,000 respectively. All three are earning income in professionally managed endowment accounts. Your donation will help increase the endowment capital in the VIES Leaders Entrance Award to our target of $50,000, so that we can offer one $2,000 award each year.

* Income from this fund has been supplemented annually by members’ donations to ensure $4,000 is available for two awards.
