Bader Philanthropies, Inc., a Milwaukee-based foundation, donated $1 million to support Victoria College’s Scholars-in-Residence program. This program addresses the shortage of research opportunities available to undergraduates in the humanities and includes a unique requirement to live in residence at the College throughout the month-long, summer program. “Victoria College is absolutely delighted that Bader Philanthropies, Inc., through the Isabel and Alfred Bader Fund, has come forward to support the Scholars-in-Residence program,” says William Robins, president of Victoria University. “Such a generous donation will ensure that this ground-breaking program thrives.”
The Scholars-in-Residence program began in 2016 as a collaboration between Victoria College and the Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto. The Bader Endowment for the Scholars-in-Residence program will provide the funding needed to ensure students have access to the residency and co-curricular components of the program.
