Planning your future can be tough. You have to figure out what you want to do, which school is right for you and how to pay for your education. At Noront, we know this can be frustrating and we want to help.
Since 2014, we have awarded over $140,000 to post secondary students who are heading to university, college, technical or apprenticeship programs through a partnership with Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures: Bursaries, Scholarships, and Awards. Our funding has benefited students in a wide variety of programs including nursing, social work, science, visual arts, computer science, culinary management, paralegal and mental health. We support education right up to PhD level programs.
Craig Waboose from Eabametoong First Nation is an Indspire past award recipient who works at Toronto City Hall. We are extremely proud of all he has accomplished. Read about his experience here and here.
Craig received the Noront Resources Aboriginal Award in Memory of Paul Semple, named for our Chief Operating Officer who passed away suddenly in 2015. This award gives preference to students from the Matawa communities, Attawapiskat and Mishkeegogamang as well as graduates of the Ring of Fire Aboriginal Training Alliance (RoFATA).
What is an award? It is a combination of a scholarship, which is given out based on academic merit and a bursary, which is based on financial need.
