Indigenous scholarships:

Paper Excellence’s Indigenous scholarship program is tailored to provide assistance to Metis, Inuit and First Nations students pursuing education in public universities, community colleges or institutes of technology. Valued at $1,000 each, these scholarships aim to empower eligible Indigenous students residing in the company’s operating communities.

Application deadline: April 30, 2024
