Thank you for your interest in supporting a signature student experience.
What distinguishes a Mount Allison education? Without question, it’s the powerful combination of rigorous academic depth and strength, a student-centred focus, and unique beyond-the-classroom learning opportunities.
This extraordinary Mount Allison student experience is a fundraising priority for our University. It includes gifts toward internships and summer research projects, innovative teaching projects, and community-integrated learning. It also includes gifts toward mental health and wellness, the University’s Meighen Centre supporting students with disabilities, and gifts directed to Mounties athletics.
