The Women of Inspiration Education Award sponsored by Syncrude Canada are once again open for application. 3 scholarships ($3000 each) have generously been made available to female students within the RMWB who are pursuing their post-secondary education at the time of application (university, college or technical school).
Over the past 6 years, Girls Inc. and Syncrude have proudly assisted 16 women to pursue their goals with our scholarships. These women are the role-models for girls in our community, so that they are inspired to become strong, smart and bold women in the future.
Two of the scholarships have been named after our former Women of Inspiration. The Barb Jewers Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who demonstrates a sincere commitment to volunteerism and community activism. The Elsie Yanik Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a qualifying applicant with First Nations or Metis ancestry.
To honour the legacy of Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta’s founder Ann Dort-MacLean, the Ann Dort-MacLean Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant with demonstrated passion for youth empowerment and gender equality.
The award will be given based on the financial need, academic achievement and extracurricular and community involvement. The deadline to apply is August 2, 2019, at 4:00pm. Should you have any questions about the scholarship, please call at 780-790-9236.
