Arefeh Ghane
Weber Shandwick Richard Ellis Scholarship

Being in the BPR program has given me the confidence and skills to approach my career with dedication and excitement, and I am extremely grateful for the passionate professors who have encouraged me along the way.

I am thankful that awards like Weber Shandwick's are supporting students' goals and bringing attention to the importance of the industry being inclusive and welcoming of diverse individuals and experiences.


Sumaya Abdisalam
Rogers Communications Diversity in Communications Scholarship

By awarding me this scholarship, you have lifted a weight off my shoulders and allowed me to fully dedicate myself to my coursework as well as focusing on securing a fantastic internship this summer. I am so grateful that donors like Rogers Communications have given students the opportunity to have access to funding that will further assist us in reaching our career goals.


Omar Quiroz
Proof Strategies Scholarship

When I complete this program, I will be the first person in my family to graduate with a bachelor's degree. As a Canadian born to Colombian immigrant parents, I feel pride in living the life my parents fought so hard to give me - but it has not come easily.

I would like to sincerely thank Proof Strategies Inc. for your generosity and your ongoing support for students like me in the world of communications. As a full-time student who is currently unemployed due to the pandemic and yet actively applying to jobs, this financial assistance is much appreciated.
