Named Student Award

Today, SFU can only provide donor-funded awards to 30% of the eligible students who apply. 

Your generosity can change a student's life when you create and name your own student award for only $84 per month or $1,000 per year, with a minimum commitment of three years. 


Benefits to you - naming rights

One key benefit of creating an annual scholarship, bursary or award is the ability to name your award in a meaningful way - whether it’s honouring your family, yourself, your company or memorializing a loved one.

Ready to make a commitment? Here’s what you can expect from us:

  • Your award will be advertised for student competition in the SFU Academic Calendar and Financial Aid websites.
  • Regular communication about your student recipients and their thank you letters.
  • Annual financial reports (available upon request)
  • Recognition through our Annual Giving Leadership Society
  • A charitable gift tax receipt

I'd love to chat with you to find out how we can create an award that reflects your passion and interests.
