Shine with us
At the Dhillon School of Business, our aim is to become recognized as one of the most innovative and leading edge business schools in Canada. We want to be renowned for our tradition of providing cutting-edge, industry-focused programs and disciplinary depth, while also developing the transformational learning opportunities and socially relevant research that help make the world a better place through socially responsible and ethical enterprise.
We have inspired, thoughtful and energetic students who are discovering their purpose, and in doing so, helping us reach our ambitions of excellence. We also need your support to achieve this goal.
Every donation you give to the University of Lethbridge helps us improve and support exceptional educational experiences and develop groundbreaking research—allowing us to shape and educate the future leaders of our city, province, country and the world.
Dhillon School of Business Scholarships
The Aikimmisa Pookaiksi Graduate Scholarship in Management
The Aikimmisa Pookaiksi Graduate Scholarship in Management, was established in 2023 by the dean of the Dhillon School of Business, Dr. Kerry Godfrey, with gifts from the community, to help address the lack of funding for Indigenous graduate students.
Aikimmisa Pookaiksi is a Blackfoot term and means to ‘raise up the children.’ The name was given by Blackfoot Elder Francis First Charger and is meant to honour the “Every Child Matters” movement and help further the school’s commitment to reconciliation and Indigenisation.
Once donations reach $25,000.00, the Aikimmisa Pookaiksi scholarship will be endowed and will double in size with match funding dollars to be provided by the University’s Board of Governors. This will then allow a scholarship of $1,000 minimum to be given to an Indigenous graduate student in need of support every year. Donate here.
