• The Benoît Lauzé Scholarship of Excellence

    CIBC and the Schulich School of Business, together with Schulich alumni, friends and former CIBC colleagues are establishing a special scholarship in memory of the late Benoît Lauzé (MBA ’91). This scholarship will reflect the values most closely associated with Benoît, positivity and respect, as well as his drive to support people around him.

    Donations received will be attributed towards CIBC’s campaign goal of $250,000.

    Initiated in August 2021 by Michael Bigger (MBA ’92), the Benoît Lauzé Scholarship of Excellence aims to benefit and support an incoming student in the future Master of Health Industry Administration degree, expected to launch at the Schulich School of Business. Applicants must have a track record of achievement and a strong interest in the medical field. Recipients must also demonstrate academic excellence (minimum A average) from previous studies, be a supportive team player, and enjoy lifelong learning. The award will be adjudicated by the Schulich School of Business’ Office of Student Financial Services and will require a statement of interest.

Additionally, alumni donors will be enrolled in the Dean’s Society program during the year in which the donation was received.
