The scholarship provides financial support to high school graduates pursuing post-secondary education and skills training through university degrees and college diplomas, certificate programs at vocational schools and apprenticeships:
- $2,500 CAD per year for a degree, diploma or certificate program of study (up to a maximum of four years or until the first degree/diploma is obtained, up to a maximum of two years or until the first certificate is obtained, whichever occurs first)
- $750 CAD for each period of apprenticeship technical training in classroom studies up to a maximum four years ($3,000 CAD) or until the apprenticeship program is completed, whichever occurs first
The scholarship is open to Canadian citizens or permanent residents that reside within the area eligible for bus transportation to Fort McMurray by the Northland School Division. To receive the scholarship the applicant must be a high school graduate by the time the scholarship is awarded and be entering full-time studies at a post-secondary institution or plan to begin an eligible apprenticeship technical training program within two years.
