2024 Algoma University Golf Classic: Fundraising triumph for student scholarships and bursaries

University raises $35,000 for student support

The 2024 Algoma University Golf Classic successfully brought together golfers, sponsors, alumni, and supporters for a day of fun and philanthropy at Crimson Ridge. Participants rallied to raise funds for scholarships and bursaries at Algoma University, significantly impacting local students’ lives.

The $35,000 raised will help establish new student awards to assist first-year bachelor’s and master’s students.

In a direct reflection of Algoma University’s commitment to affordability and accessibility, the raised funds will immediately support 14 students. Ten first-year students in high-enrollment bachelor programs at the Sault Ste. Marie campus will each receive $1,500, while four students from the Master of Social Work and Master of Computer Science programs will each be awarded $5,000. This financial assistance will alleviate their academic and personal stress, allowing them to fully focus on their studies and future success.

“I am deeply grateful to our donors, sponsors, alumni and all participants for their incredible support at the 2024 Algoma University Golf Classic,” said President and Vice-chancellor Asima Vezina, PhD. “Their generosity ensures that 14 deserving students will receive financial assistance, allowing them to focus on their academic pursuits without the burden of financial stress. These funds not only provide immediate relief but also empower our students to achieve their full potential, paving the way for their future success.”

Algoma University is ranked second in Canada for scholarships and bursaries by Maclean’s magazine, while also offering the most affordable tuition in Ontario for both domestic and international students.

Since its inception, the Algoma University Golf Classic has raised just under $600,000, significantly impacting the lives of countless students.
