Shell provides bursary funding to Northern Lakes College

July 3, 2013

Shell Canada has donated $250,000 to Northern Lakes College to establish the Shell Canada Aboriginal Education Advancement Fund, which will provide bursaries to students who wish to enter a PSE program, but do not yet meet academic requirements. The funding will enable these students to upgrade their education to meet entrance standards in various programs, without having to leave northern Alberta. Rick Neidig, president and CEO of Northern Lakes College, noted that the funding will enable “northern Albertans to be job ready and employable in a number of high demand careers.” Northern Lakes News Release
