Supporting Student Scholarships since 2002
Abbondànza (Italian for abundance), is the Faculty of Fine Arts annual student scholarship fundraiser. For 19 years generous sponsors and supporters of the arts have come together for an evening of entertainment, Italian food, and fine art, all to support the passions and dreams of students studying art, drama, music and new media at the University of Lethbridge.
The University of Lethbridge and the Faculty of Fine Arts are excited to announce that the Abbondànza Endowment awarded a record 30 scholarships in the 2020/2021 academic year! This is thanks to our generous and inspiring sponsors, donors and attendees of our annual fundraising event.
In 2019, the growing endowment reached over $1.6 million dollars, allowing the opportunity to re-write terms of reference for the award distribution, creating new award categories. The endowment, which originally supported financial awards for senior Fine Arts students, now provides scholarships to entrance, continuing, senior and graduate-level students.
