Bruce Power launches scholarship program for Aboriginal post-secondary students
By Renée Francoeur
April 24, 2015 – Bruce Power is launching a new post-secondary Aboriginal Scholarship program to support students from local Aboriginal communities.
The program will award $2,000 to 10 students annually to assist with their education beyond their first year, Bruce Power said, adding that funds can be used to help cover costs related to travel, accommodation, tuition and books.
“Education is such a crucial stepping stone in life, but it can be an expensive one, so we’re proud to be able to help local young people reach their dreams,” said Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “This will help students to get in a better position to apply for jobs at Bruce Power and other companies.”
Students from Saugeen, Nawash, Historic Saugeen Metis and members of Metis Nation of Ontario Region 7—who have completed their first year of post-secondary education or first year of a skilled trade—are eligible.
