Students First!

Four students standing on the bridge in the garden. They are holding a sign that says students first on it. All are smiling at the camera.

At Renison, students come first.

Our goal is to raise a total of $200,000 annually towards scholarships, awards and bursaries. Budgetary constraints are forcing Renison to make some difficult choices; please help us to meet the growing financial needs of our students.

Your generosity will never be forgotten. Thank you for helping make my dream for me and my children a reality. Our lives will never be the same.

C.G., Thunder Bay

Can you help?

We are seeking your support. Any size gift will help! Choose one of our recommended giving levels or choose your own level of giving; pay in one installment or pledge for 2, 3 or 5 years.

Examples of how your donations may be used...

  • $1,000 is the average value of Renison’s Student Urgent Needs (SUN) Bursary, which has paid for everything from emergency dental surgery to winter boots and coats. Thank you for supporting the needs of our students.
  • Entrance scholarships range in value from $1,000 to $4,000 and assist high achieving students with first year expenses including tuition, books and housing. Last year, over $115,000 in entrance scholarships was awarded. Your gift will reach more than one student.
  • In 2021, Renison introduced its Indigenous Students Bursary, valued at $6,000. These bursaries are helping Renison meet its commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls To Action, which includes providing addition funding opportunities for Indigenous students.

We hope that you will join us and put Students First!
