Atlantic Promise Scholars, supporting African and Indigenous students in Nova Scotia
Lori Bauld, Development Officer, Faculty of Management, Dalhousie University
Alison DeLory, Associate Director, Advancement Communications, Dalhousie University
In 2020, management students challenged Dalhousie to do more to support equity, diversity and inclusion. In response, Dal’s Faculty of Management created the Promise Scholars program to provide scholarships and wraparound supports to African Nova Scotian and Indigenous students. After a successful launch, Dal realized the impact would be greater if other universities joined us. In 2021, Dal proposed a partnership with the region’s business schools, thus creating the Atlantic Promise Scholars Initiative, led by Dalhousie. Atlantic universities and business leaders now collaborate to recruit, retain, support and graduate more Black and Indigenous students from all 11 university business schools in the region. Participating schools work together to ensure more Black and Indigenous students become empowered to lead in the Atlantic business community.
