Support the Abbondànza Endowment Fund

Since its inception, the Abbondànza Scholarship Endowment has awarded more than 100 scholarships to deserving senior students in Art, Drama, Music, New Media, and Multidisciplinary programs. The ever-growing endowment allows the Faculty of Fine Arts to provide a minimum of nine $3,000 undergraduate scholarships each year, making the Abbondànza Scholarships one of the largest awards provided to uLethbridge Fine Arts students.

Thanks to generous donors supporting Abbondànza annually, the endowment is now able to support Master of Fine Arts and Master of Music students with four $4,500 scholarships. Since 2015, 11 hardworking graduate students have been able to continue pursuing their passions.


"I can't express how grateful I am to have had this amazing opportunity given to me. Because of your help I have a 3.75 grade point average and I couldn’t have done it without you. My academic success during 2016 is directly related to you. It was your decision to provide me with this most substantial financial backing and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything.”
