The Alumni Office supports a number of giving initiatives at MacEwan University and has created the following annual awards for MacEwan students:

Alumni Legacy Award

Future Alumni Award

Alumni Award for Graduate or Professional Studies

Many of our alumni “pay it forward” by donating to scholarships, awards and bursaries. Knowing the financial impact of a university education first hand, they are happy to give deserving recipients a hand up.

Monthly Gift

One of the best ways to give back to your alma mater is to pave the way forward for a current student. Don’t just post your entry level or summer jobs on your own company website or on Post on MacEwanLife, the student job board. Interested in hiring and want to know about the various sources of wage subsidy? Contact the Careers and Experience office at MacEwan and ask about funding opportunities.


Careers and Experience

Mentors, guest speakers, committee representatives—share your experience and expertise with MacEwan students or with our neighbouring non-profit organizations. Alumni play an important role in making our community stronger. Contact us to let us know how you'd like to volunteer on campus.

Volunteer with us
