A new fund to support Canadian military personnel who attend the University of Winnipeg was set up on Monday.
Telus partnered with the U of W to announce a $15,000 Telus Military Families Scholarship Fund to support military members and their families.
The scholarship will be awarded each May to assist a select number of sons and daughters of Canadian Forces personnel to attend the University of Winnipeg.
Manitobans can contribute to the fund by donating at UWinnipegfoundation.ca/choose.
The telecommunications company also announced the creation of a $150,000 Telus Technology Fund, meant to enable the U of W to invest in technology from Telus.
Enrollment is up 2.8% at the U of W this year to account for 9,394 students.
