Western University Be Extraordinary The Campaign For Western

Thank you for supporting Western’s students

September 7, 2012

Your gift to create a student award means that more deserving young men and women are living the Western Experience. They are learning from the extraordinary teaching and research of our dedicated faculty, and developing the leadership skills they need to become thoughtful citizens.

During the 2011/12 academic year, your support helped reach more than 4,100 graduate and undergraduate students at Western, providing them with $10.4 million in donor-funded scholarships, awards and bursaries.

As this report illustrates, Western is creating opportunities for our students to become global leaders. From overseas study programs to international athletic competitions, Western’s students are making their mark.

We are committed to offering more global opportunities for our students, by ensuring that 10 per cent of our students receive an overseas learning experience, while growing our international student body to 10 per cent of the Western population. Our goal is to make sure that the best and brightest students from Canada and around the world enter our doors for an extraordinary learning experience.

In the coming months, you will learn more about how we plan to achieve our goals, by tripling the number of available undergraduate student scholarships and providing more than 2,000 graduate student awards.

I sincerely thank you for creating and supporting student awards at Western. Your gift provides students with the determination, confidence and encouragement to pursue their passions – both inside the classroom and around the globe.
