“We’re pleased to be able to offer scholarships to Indigenous youth who live in the communities surrounding our mills,” says Graham Kissack, VP EH&S and corporate communications.

The $250 scholarships – both community and First Nations – are available to high school graduates who are living in Prince Albert and are entering their first year at a public university, community college or institute of technology.
