The Promise Scholars program is focused on attracting more Black and Indigenous applicants to Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management, and supporting them as students.
We believe that management education plays a vital role in taking great ideas from inspiration to realization. Our students become their generation’s managers and leaders — at home and around the world. They make remarkable contributions in large businesses, in small not-for-profits, in their communities and in government.
To get where we need to be, to do what we need to do, to become what is needed today and tomorrow, our Faculty of Management community must reflect a diversity of lived experiences and perspectives. Greater diversity in the faculty will offer a more welcoming, inspirational environment and better sense of community for racialized students. Increased diversity also introduces new perspectives that improve decision making, creativity and openness for all.
Our Promise to Support Black and Indigenous Students
Through the Promise Scholars program, we will support and nurture students with financial support as well as work and internship experiences, and dedicated and personalized academic and career mentoring.
We believe that our collective futures require us to attend to the ways we have excluded and prevented racialized students, and especially Black and Indigenous students, from fulfilling their promise.
We are seeking support from the community to create a comprehensive support fund, the Promise Scholars Fund, to support students entering an undergraduate program through the Faculty of Management.
You can help us make a difference — not just for the Promise Scholars and the Faculty of Management, but for the future leadership of our businesses, non-profits, governments and communities.

Social justice starts with equitable opportunities and access to education for everyone. If we want the world to be a better place, we should make education accessible to the marginalized.

I believe that an education at the Faculty of Management opens remarkable doors: I want those doors to be wide open for Black and Indigenous students.
