Anonymous gift given to an established Biology award
In December 2008, Wilfrid Laurier University received an anonymous gift of $9,000 to go towards an already established undergraduate award in Biology.
This donation also qualifies for the matching gift program through The Ontario Trust for Student Support (OTSS.) Through this program, the Ontario government matches, dollar for dollar, donations made to endowed funds used to establish awards for Ontario students who are in financial need.
