University of Alberta Golden Bears Volleyball Scholarship

Sherwood Buick GMC's Scholarship Sponsorship

Sherwood Buick GMC is proud to announce a scholarship partnering opportunity with the University of Alberta's Golden Bears Men's Volleyball team! As a proud supporter of post secondary education and athletics, Sherwood Buick GMC has invested in a long term connection to provide scholarships to athletic students.

The Scholarship

This building block process began in early 2019 with a $5,000 donation to the Golden Bears Men's Volleyball team alongside a Golden Bear themed GMC Acadia for the team to use. This vehicle can be spotted around Edmonton and Sherwood Park decked out with the University of Alberta's Golden Bear Guba to help bring awareness to the athletics program. Long-term, Sherwood Buick GMC aims to reach a goal of $25,000 to assist athletic academic students who attend the University of Alberta. Sherwood Buick GMC will be donating a minimum of $1,000 per year over the next 5 years, plus additional donations will be made in conjunction with vehicle sales associated with the partnership (see How You Can Support). Sherwood Buick GMC is passionate about the opportunity to aide many young athletes with the chance to play for the Golden Bears team. We hope to assist with many academic scholarship opportunities by holding sponsored students responsible for maintaining a certain GPA along with being a recognized Golden Bears athlete at the University of Alberta.

How You Can Support

Sherwood Buick GMC has pledged to donate a set amount of $1,000 per year to the Golden Bears Scholarship Fund. We have also set aside the opportunity to create a completely separate scholarship funded from our vehicles sales. If you spot the 2019 GMC Acadia around Edmonton and this peaks your interest in a new vehicle, let Sherwood Buick GMC know that 'Guba Sent You!' For each new or pre-owned vehicle sold to friends and family of the University of Alberta's Golden Bear team, Sherwood Buick GMC will donate $500 from the sale towards the scholarship fund creating more opportunity for students to participate in local studies and athletic programs.
