The University of Winnipeg has joined the HigherEdPoints program to help create access to innovative sources of funding for students at UWinnipeg. This new partnership allows anyone to convert Aeroplan Miles into funds to cover fees at UWinnipeg. Any student – parent – grandparent – friend or neighbor can donate their points to assist a student on the road to higher education. You can also donate points directly to The University of Winnipeg to help any students in need. Its an easy three step process.

“This is a productive outlet for using your points,” expressed UWinnipeg graduate student David Datzkiw. “It gives you versatility in putting your points towards something useful like education rather than spending them on items that you might not need.”

Step one – You join HigherEd – step two – redeem your points – step three – transfer the points to the student of your choice to help on their educational journey using your Aeroplan Miles.

“Giving students more options and supportive programs to make ends meet, is always a good thing! Every little bit counts’,” shared Kam Holland, Director – Admissions, Awards, and Financial Aid.
