Bruce Power has today announced a four-year, $100,000 Indigenous scholarship program, which will benefit First Nation and Métis students in our region.
Bruce Power’s investment of $100,000 will trigger another $100,000 matching funds by the Government of Canada, making it a $200,000 fund.
The Bruce Power Indigenous Post-Secondary scholarship will run from 2019-22, and will be administered by the Indspire program, which is dedicated to raising funds to deliver programs that provide the necessary tools for Indigenous peoples to achieve their potential. It is devoted to promoting, supporting and celebrating the achievement of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people – youth in particular.
“We are very pleased to support this program as education is the foundation upon which we build our future. It shapes who we are and who we will be,” said James Scongack, Bruce Power’s Vice-President Corporate Affairs & Environment. “It’s our sincere hope these scholarships will lead to educational experiences that will inspire the next generation of community leaders.”
