New bursary for students.
Aboriginal students can apply for the bursary and scholarship awards while studying at accredited colleges, universities and institutes in Alberta. Registered Aboriginal apprentices in Alberta can also apply. Some of the eligible programs include a general education diploma, applied diploma or degree programs in the oil and gas trades and technology fields.
Scholarships are in the amount of $500. NAAF's scholarship is supported by BP Canada, TransCanada, Suncor Energy Foundation, Petro Canada and Devon Energy Corp.
NAAF hopes to increase the awareness of potential careers in this sector among Aboriginal high school students and Aboriginal people. Another goal of the OGTT is to add to the number and quality of Aboriginal candidates employed in the Oil and Gas trades and technology sector. First Nations, Inuit and Metis students can apply for the OGTT bursary and scholarships online at www.naaf.ca.
The deadline for applications is February 20, 2008.
