Alumni Scholarship and Bursary Endowment

"I think donors have a much bigger influence on our lives than they know. I'm so grateful."
Mamadi Camara came to Canada with his mother and sister when he was four...finances were tight growing up, but Mamadi dreamed of going to university and playing professional soccer.
 
Because of our donors, including many SFU alumni, Mamadi is now in his fourth year at SFU. As senior captain, he led Canada's only National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) soccer team to the NCAA Championship tournament for the third straight year.
 
With one dream realized, he has the opportunity to pursue his next goal. Mamadi was one of just four Canadians invited to participate in the 2019 Major League Soccer Player Combine. In total, 60 collegiate players are invited to showcase their talents in front of representatives from all 24 MLS clubs and are eligible for selection in the 2019 SuperDraft. 
 
Today, SFU can provide donor-funded awards to only 30% of the eligible students who apply. But you can help change that. Donate today and give critical support to students who would not otherwise be able to afford a university education. Additionally, recognize outstanding students and reward them for their hard work.
 
100% of your gift will go to a deserving student.
