Pay tribute to a friend — and empower others like him
When Brett Wiese’s life was tragically cut short at the age of 20, fellow Haskayne School of Business student Colton Lewis, BComm’15, channelled his energy into honouring his friend — and helping other students like Brett. The Brett Wiese Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to Bachelor of Commerce students who share Brett’s positive, ambitious and caring spirit.
Give students an extra push
Looking back on his undergraduate experience, Luke Neilson, BA’19, would have loved a push to aim for a competitive writing award — and so he created that opportunity for others like him. While still working towards his own honours degree, Neilson set up a unique scholarship for the student with the most outstanding honours thesis submitted to the Department of Philosophy.
Support students beyond the first four years
Many parents and students tend to save only for an undergraduate degree, making graduate school less attainable for some. So when sisters Safia Nathoo, BSc’07, MSc’09, MBA’14, and Nabeela Nathoo, BSc’09, PhD’14, MD’17, were looking for a way to give back to their alma mater, they took inspiration from the donors whose scholarships helped them through their 10-plus years of advanced education at UCalgary. The Nathoo Family Graduate Scholarship is awarded to Faculty of Graduate Studies students who, like the Nathoo sisters, are involved in leadership and volunteer activities.
Empower business students with a game-changing scholarship
Thanks to a gift from the Haskayne family, the best and brightest incoming Bachelor of Commerce students have a unique opportunity for a game-changing, full-ride scholarship worth $100,000. The Richard and Lois Haskayne Legacy Scholarship is the largest and most prestigious at the Haskayne School of Business, helping the school recruit high-achieving students and, ultimately, benefitting the community as an investment in our youth.
