TORONTO – U SPORTS announced Monday the official partnership with BlackNorth Initiative (BNI), launching Athletes on Track, a bursary and mentorship program designed to financially support University level student-athletes and supply them with the tools necessary to enter and thrive in the job market once they graduate.

Funded through BNI by Scotia Wealth Management, and Sherrard Kuzz LLP, the program consists of a $5,000 bursary which will be awarded to eight Black student-athletes. A mentor will also be provided to each student by BNI for support and guidance in general skills such as resume building and public speaking, as well as topics targeted more specifically to each student’s requirements.
