Paper Excellence has announced the creation of a new annual scholarship for Métis students who live in the communities where they operate. The $1,000 scholarship is available to Métis high school graduates who are living in our operating communities in British Columbia and Saskatchewan and are entering their first year at a public university, community college, or institute of technology.
“Paper Excellence understands the importance of being good neighbours and greatly values its relationships with Indigenous communities,” said Graham Kissack, Vice President, Environment, Health & Safety and Corporate Communications. “In addition to this, investing in education continues to be a key focus for us. So, this scholarship makes sense on a lot of levels.”
Paper Excellence also offers community and First Nations scholarships directly through each of their mills. For more information about those scholarships, please contact the mill in your community. Each mill’s contact information is included in its fact sheet on our website. Note: The Métis scholarship applications for this year have closed, but will re-open next Spring 2022. Keep an eye on their website linked above for the opening date.
