In the fall of 2016 Ifeanyi Emesih launched a bursary program for international students under his foundation; The Halifax Experience Education foundation. The goal of this program is to address the concerns of international students who are in financial need.

In category two, a $500 bursary is awarded to international students who are registered in any of the post-secondary institutions in Nova Scotia.
Two $1,000 will be awarded to international students every fall in category one and three $500 will be awarded to international students in category two.
