On Thursday, November 22, 2018, approximately 300 people were in attendance at Université de Saint-Boniface’s annual Soirée d’excellence, an event recognizing the many students receiving scholarships. On the agenda: meetings, awards and touching moments.

A total of 141 scholarship recipients were honored during this event with a very special goal: bringing together scholarship recipients and the donors who made these awards possible.

“It’s a really lovely evening,” said Lynne Connelly. “Students get to know the people who made their academic journey a little easier. Some make strong connections. It’s so moving to witness these moments that are as special for the students as they are for the donors.”

To date, 388 scholarships and bursaries totalling $522,708.71 have been granted to 320 students for the Fall 2018 semester. These include first-year entrance scholarships, bursaries as well as the scholarships awarded to the students invited to attend the Soirée d’excellence.
