The RBC Foundation has donated $1.025 million to three programs at the University of Manitoba.

The contribution to the U of M’s Front and Centre campaign will see $500,000 toward the RBC Foundation Manitoba Online Overcoming Depression (MOOD) Program, $500,000 for the RBC Foundation Health Sciences Student Travel Initiative, and the Aboriginal Business Education Partners (ABEP) Scholarships, supporting Indigenous youth pursuing studies in business, will receive $25,000.

“Through this gift announced today, students experiencing mood disorders will find the help they need, be able to attend conferences for learning enrichment and to share knowledge with their peers,” said Dr. David Barnard, University of Manitoba president and vice-chancellor.
