PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards

Date and Time: 
Fri. Dec. 4/15 05:00 PM to 05:30 PM

Do you know an Aboriginal student in Grade 11/12? Could they benefit from a $5,000 scholarship and learning new leadership skills?  If so, we are looking for 3 students to join us in Montréal, QC during our 16th Annual National Conference February 16-18, 2016. We would love to see someone from your area win this award.

 

There is a huge demand both within Aboriginal communities and off-reserve for Aboriginal financial management professionals. However, very few of our young people are pursuing an education in financial management after high school. 

That is why AFOA Canada & PotashCorp have come together and we are proud to present The PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards Now open to Aboriginal youth in grades 11 & 12.

 

Students are asked to submit a 1,500 word essay on the questions noted in the application form and submit 2 letters of recommendation.

 

Recipients will attend AFOA Canada's 16th Anniversary National Conference which is being hosted in Montréal, Québec this year and will participate in a 4 day youth program designed to introduce youth to careers in Aboriginal finance and management.

 

Successful Recipients are also eligible for a $5,000 scholarship.

Deadline to Apply is: Friday, December 4, 2015.
