The recipients must demonstrate excellent academic achievement, normally a GPA of 3.5 out of 4.3 or higher, and be Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada. In recognition of Saint Mary’s University’s commitment to support greater participation by women in STEM fields, preference will be given and every effort made to present at least half of the scholarships per year to female candidates. Award selection will be administered by the Dean of the Sobey School of Business upon recommendation of the MBAN Program.

  • Unconditionally accepted to the MBAN program.
  • Commencing studies in the year the Scholarship is awarded; candidates who have already begun their studies are not eligible.

This scholarship is made possible by Dr. Robert (Bob) Kelly’s $1 million gift to A World Without Limits – The Campaign for Saint Mary’s University, a generous endorsement of Saint Mary’s and the Sobey School of Business’s commitment to bringing forward innovative, relevant graduate programs, and in educating the business leaders of tomorrow. The Sobey School of Business would like to thank Dr. Bob Kelly for his generous and ongoing support of our students, faculty, and program.
