Support the Abbondànza Endowment Fund
Since its inception, the Abbondànza Scholarship Endowment has awarded 104 scholarships to deserving senior students in Art, Drama, Music, New Media and Multidisciplinary programs. The ever-growing endowment allows the Faculty of Fine Arts to provide a minimum of nine $3,000 undergraduate scholarships each year, making the Abbondànza Scholarships one of the largest awards provided to University of Lethbridge Fine Arts students.
Thanks to generous donors supporting Abbondànza annually, the endowment is now able to support Master of Fine Arts and Master of Music students with four $4,500 scholarships. Since 2015, 11 hardworking graduate students have been able to continue pursuing their passions.
"I can't express how grateful I am to have had this amazing opportunity given to me. Because of your help I have a 3.75 grade point average and I couldn’t have done it without you. My academic success during 2016 is directly related to you. It was your decision to provide me with this most substantial financial backing and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything.”
Kathryn Abbott, New Media
2016-2017 Scholarship Recipient
With all donations going directly into the endowment fund, the first dollar we received -- along with every dollar since -- is still working to support students. Join us at the 17th anniversary Abbondànza extravaganza and support undergraduate and graduate Fine Arts students as they work hard to achieve their educational goals.
