An anonymous donor has stepped forward to establish a scholarship that will provide First Nations, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) students with a full-ride scholarship in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or math.

The $500,000 gift will provide up to $20,000 per year to cover tuition, residence, and a meal plan, if required, to eligible students.

“I was shocked to learn of the discovery of unmarked graves of children who had died in residential schools,” says the anonymous donor. “I’m hoping this award does some good and helps FNMI students earn a degree.”

The LC Memorial Award for First Nation, Métis, and Inuit students in STEM will provide an opportunity for five students to receive an undergraduate degree at the University of Windsor.
