Associated Alumni

Associated alumnae 

Supporting current students and alumnae for over 100 years

The UNB Associated Alumnae Council is made up of female-identified graduates and former women students of the university. Founded in 1910 and incorporated in 1919, the association's goal is to promote – directly and indirectly – the educational and financial interests of the university, especially those related to the female-identified graduates and undergraduates of the university.

The Associated Alumnae annually awards several scholarships to current students totaling more than $20,000 per year, including: an Entrance Scholarship in Education named in honour of Muriel Farris Baird; the Zula V. Hallett Scholarship; the Marion Fleet Rogers Scholarship; Alumnae award for part-time students and travel grants to graduate students.
