Are you considering a career in the natural resources field? Will you be entering into or continuing your education in an environmental post-secondary program? You may be eligible for a $2,000 scholarship!
The Miisun/Miitigoog Scholarship Program is intended for local high school, college and university students who attended school or live within the Treaty 3 Area. The Scholarships Program provides up to 8 bursaries annually, with a combined value of $16,000!
To be an eligible student you should either reside in or attend school in one of the communities within our management area in the Kenora and Whiskey Jack Forests. Although it is not mandatory to be enrolled in a forestry, GIS or natural science program, preference for scholarships will be given to students in these program fields. To apply, students must complete the application form, stating their planned/current field of study, which community they belong to, along with some other general information. The application can be found on below.
The deadline to apply for these scholarships is June 30th. Miisun/Miitigoog is proud to support our local students through this program and we are hopeful the success of their Scholarships Program this year will continue in subsequent years as awareness and number of applicants grows.
Miisun/Miitigoog’s partnering communities are Niisaachewan Anishinaabe Nation, Wabaseemoong Independent Nations, Onigaming First Nation, Anishnabeg of Naongashing (Big Island First Nation), Northwest Angle 33, Naotkamegwanning (Whitefish Bay First Nation), Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, and Wabauskang First Nation. If you think you meet the qualifications for one of these scholarships, please fill out the application form, and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
