The Western New York Prosperity Fellowship (1) (002)
The WNY Prosperity Fellowship is currently recruiting for the next academic year (2021-22). Two information sessions are currently scheduled via Zoom. We ask that professors share the above information on the flyer with their students.
The Canisius College Western New York (WNY) Prosperity Fellowship is an innovative program for students in their junior or senior years or graduate business students who have an entrepreneurial drive and want to make a difference in Western New York.
The Fellowship combines scholarship assistance with credit-bearing internships, networking, and skill-building to provide students with academic and practical experiences in their intended professions. Students receive significant financial assistance based on need, so they can fully focus on making the most of their internships, educational experiences, and networking and skill building opportunities. In return, students commit to working and giving back economically to Western New York for at least two years within a 10-year period upon graduation.

Students in CLS 216: Race and Ethnicity in the Ancient World, taught by Davide Salvo, PhD, participated in a virtual group tour at the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center. The students had the opportunity to see permanent exhibitions and ask the staff questions.
This learning experience was made possible by the generous support of the Office of Mission & Identity and its director, Sarah Signorino, who also joined the group tour.

Jordan Henderson, a junior guard on the Canisius men’s basketball team, is one of 11 student-athletes and head coaches from MAAC-member schools to take part in the first wave of the “MAAC Time Out for Black Lives” reading initiative.
The “Time Out for Black Lives” reading program aims to inspire and educate youth, athletes, families and fans. The program has an interactive website where coaches and student-athletes from MAAC basketball programs volunteer their time and resources to read children’s books in entertaining videos, all focusing on black culture, history, music and myths. The program is part of the MAAC’s United for Justice campaign that was introduced over the summer.
“I am excited to be a part of the MAAC’s Time Out for Black Lives reading program,” Henderson said. “This program is a fun way to help children learn about the importance of reading and I’m honored to be one of the student-athletes chosen to help share that message, while also sharing the important message of African American culture.”
To watch Henderson read the book “Cool Cuts”, written and illustrated by Mechal Renee Roe, click here.
