A large portion of the proceeds from auctioning off Antoine Gallant’s private collection of artwork will be used to create the Fonds de bourses Antoine-Gallant/FAÉUNB scholarship fund. Mr. Gallant was a supporter of Visual Arts students at the Université de Moncton during their annual auction, so this is a meaningful way to honor his memory.

The monetary value of the fund will be $36,500 and the Bourse Antoine-Gallant/FAÉUNB scholarship will be granted to full-time students enrolled in a Visual Arts program, whether Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada (landed immigrants), who have a good academic record.

A first $1000 scholarship will be awarded this semester.

Antoine Gallant, a devoted employee, was the Payroll Officer in the Université de Moncton’s Finance Department from 1980 to 2017.

To donate to the Université de Moncton or for more information on making a donation, please contact the philanthropic development office at 506-858-4130 or 1-888-362-1144, by email at developpement@umoncton.ca or visit this website.
