TORONTO — The recently announced Fred VanVleet Scholarship is set to provide four years of tuition and books, with preference to a candidate focused on management, specifically a Black or Indigenous candidate.

The Toronto Raptors guard partnered with the University of Toronto’s Rotman Commerce business program to launch the new scholarship to support a Black or Indigenous student through their undergraduate degree.

The scholarship will include one-on-one mentoring with VanVleet, as VanVleet is an entrepreneur off the court with his own clothing line and shop. He also hosts a podcast aimed at supporting business people who are Black, Indigenous or people of colour.

Students wanting to be considered for the award must apply to Rotman Commerce and complete an awards profile online (join.utoronto.ca).
