Students studying in the Ch’nook Indigenous Business Education initiative program

September 22, 2015 – A $1-million gift from the family of Warren and Maureen Spitz will fund a new awards program at UBC’s Sauder School of Business benefiting Aboriginal women pursuing business studies. The Spitz Fellows Program was created in collaboration with the philanthropic Toronto-based family and accepted its first student this month.

“Our hope is that the Spitz Fellows Program will create opportunities for women to empower themselves and succeed in their educational, career and life goals,” said Warren Spitz, president and CEO, UCS Forest Group. “Our aim is to provide the support recipients need to invest fully in their studies and become leaders at Sauder and beyond.

With the aim of eliminating financial barriers to success, the program provides up to two Spitz Family Awards for Aboriginal Women annually, with each recipient eligible to receive $10,000 per academic year during a bachelor of commerce program and additional funds as necessary.

Spitz Fellows will be invited to play an active role at Sauder in the Ch’nook Indigenous Business Education initiative, a program focused on promoting business education in Aboriginal communities. As Ch’nook Scholars, they will help encourage business education among Aboriginal high school students, attend networking events and conferences with fellow Aboriginal business students across British Columbia, and gain access to valuable internship opportunities created through the program.

“At Sauder, we firmly believe that business education can be used as a powerful tool to transform lives and strengthen communities,” said Sauder’s Dean Robert Helsley, Grosvenor Professor of Cities, Business Economics and Public Policy. “We’re thankful the Spitz family shares this vision and greatly appreciate their generous support and partnership in developing this initiative.”

The gift to support the creation of the Spitz Fellows Program is part of UBC’s start an evolution campaign, the largest fundraising and alumni engagement campaign in Canadian history.

“At UBC we feel it’s vital to ensure that our students have the support they need to excel in their academic lives and beyond,” said Martha Piper, interim president. “We greatly appreciate the generosity of the Spitz family and thank them for helping to create this new pathway for Aboriginal women at UBC to reach their full potential.” Read More…
