Creating positive change

United by a common desire to create a better world, at Lassonde we’ve always been driven by a desire to think differently and find unique solutions to big problems through interdisciplinary partnerships.

Each one of you, as our alumni and community of friends, play a big part in creating our vision and in shaping our School into the thriving community of creators who we are today, who think in big systems rather than small silos, design with people in mind and overcome ambiguity.

You’ll always be part of our growing family and we hope you stay connected with us on your journey.

Dean’s Priorities Fund

Contributions to the Dean’s Priorities Fund enable the Dean to swiftly address the most pressing needs with readily available funding. These include:

Student scholarships fulfill various crucial roles within our school.  Foremost among these is the imperative to guarantee that every eligible student can access a Lassonde education without financial obstacles. In pursuit of this objective, we are actively pursuing both endowed and expendable funding opportunities to aid our students.  Our priorities include:

Black and Indigenous student scholarships such as through the IBET Fellowship.

International Scholarships such as through the Lal Samarasekera Memorial Fund.

Graduate Student Scholarships
The Student Financial Aid fund represents Lassonde’s distinctive approaches to addressing the diverse challenges confronting students today. This fund aids students encountering unexpected financial emergencies. Often, it enables them to remain in school and successfully complete their degree programs.

By providing support through the Student Financial Aid Fund, Lassonde prioritizes the well-being of its students, thereby fostering an environment conducive to academic success.

Every contribution to the Dean’s Priorities Fund and Student Financial Aid, regardless of size, is impactful. Thank you for your support.
