The Warren & Maureen Spitz Family Foundation

One important focus of the Warren & Maureen Spitz Family Foundation is the Spitz Fellows Program.

The Spitz Fellows Program is a unique opportunity for Aboriginal women pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce at the UBC Sauder School of Business.  The vision of the Spitz Fellows Program is to foster the conditions for each Fellow to succeed in her educational goals and beyond by eliminating financial barriers to success.   

We invite you to join us in this important work and support future Fellows to both discover and pursue the leader each one has the potential to be. 

A Spitz Fellow Defined

A Spitz Fellow is engaged in her community. She has a deep commitment to her pursuits and to others. She expresses care, creativity and a strong sense self. Above all, she is looking to become the leader she envisions of herself.

About the Spitz Fellows Program

A cornerstone of the Program is the Spitz Family Awards for Aboriginal Women, a renewable award of $10,000 per academic year, with additional funding available for Fellows, based on financial needs, or other student expenses.  The Program recognizes direct entry and transfer students who demonstrate academic achievement, community engagement, tenacity, leadership skills, and service to others. 

Fellows are encouraged to pursue opportunities to express and nurture their whole self throughout their BComm and UBC experience.
