NWT Chamber of Commerce to give two scholarships to business students
Sponsors, presenters, and AGM attendees donated enough to the Chamber that they'll be giving out one scholarship worth $2500 and another worth $1000.
NWT Chamber president Hughie Graham said they have several criteria when it comes to awarding the scholarship.
“We look at grades; there is a requirement of two letters of reference from non-families members, school transcripts and the acceptance letter. And then always the biggest thing for me being a part of the scholarship committee is the cover letter that explains the enrolment and then personal career goals."
The recipients must be going into a post-secondary business program and Graham said they would like them to return to the North after school, although it's not a requirement.
"You don’t get uptake 100% of the time, I’ve known students who have left the North and just paid off their loans. However I would have to think that the return rate is pretty high."
The deadline for applications is August 7th and the winner will be chosen on August 20th.
