Fourth Annual MasterCard Foundation Scholars Dinner

February 2, 2017

President Gertler attended the annual MasterCard Foundation Scholars Dinner, in honour of the Foundation’s leadership and the scholarship winners from Africa who are studying at U of T. Several members of the first cohort of Scholars are now preparing to graduate, and one of them, Vanessa Bart-Plange, who spoke at the first annual dinner as part of the original cohort, shared her plans post-graduation with the gathering. Following the tradition that has been established, the newest Scholars were given gifts to welcome them to the U of T community, to Toronto, and to Canada.
