University celebrates 48th anniversary with three days of giving for student scholarships

UFV is aiming to establish 22 awards for 22 deserving students in 2022 — in just 72 hours.

UFV’s goal is to establish 22 awards for 22 deserving students in 2022 over these three days.

“UFV has such deep roots in the Fraser Valley. We are part of the community that came together 48 years ago to make sure students had post-secondary education available on their in our region,” said Anita Nielsen, Executive Director, UFV Advancement. “We hope the same community drive, passion, and commitment that helped found the university will help 22 students reach for the next step in their educational journey.”

UFV wants to help 22 students achieve their dreams by achieving their academic goals. Members of the community are invited to donate to an award, faculty, or program they care about, or to which they have a connection. Every dollar contributed will make a difference.
