A group of UPEI alumni and former Islanders who now live in Halifax formed the "Halifax Friends of UPEI" in 2004. With leadership from Roger Sinclair (BBA'79), Chapter President of the Halifax Friends of UPEI, the group holds fundraising events each year to support an entrance scholarship for a student entering UPEI in full-time study who is from the Halifax region.
