JEDI is now accepting applications for two $1000 bursaries that will be awarded to two Aboriginal students enrolled in post-secondary education.
Brun-Way Highway Operations Inc., in partnership with JEDI, has been awarding two $1000 bursaries yearly to New Brunswick Aboriginal post-secondary students since 2009. In previous years, only students in the fields of business, engineering or related fields have been eligible to apply, however this year, applications for the bursaries have been opened up to all students enrolled in post-secondary education.
The Brun-Way/JEDI Bursary Program is open to all New Brunswick First Nations’ post-secondary students. It is our hope that this bursary will support Aboriginal students in accomplishing their future endeavors.
