This awards value consists of two parts; $1000.00 cheque from the AWU, and a $1000.00 tuition credit to be used at Northwest Community College for a student intending to enroll in their second year of studies in an NWCC academic program.
This award is intended to apply to a student engaged in, and committed to, community and/or international work empowering under-represented groups. For example, but not limited to: working in literacy, women’s issues, human rights, student advocacy, labour, First Nations, poverty, and multiculturalism.
This $500 scholarship was created to provide a continuing memorial to Peter’s continual striving for opportunities for academic education and excellence in this region among the many students he taught. The scholarship will be awarded to the student who achieves the highest grade point average in full-time, first-year University Credit Arts studies at NWCC.
The Rotary Club of Prince Rupert, through a donation to Northwest Community College Endowment Fund, has established an ongoing bursary fund of $250 per year. The first priority for awarding this money will be to full-time credit students attending class at the Prince Rupert campus or to Prince Rupert students attending programs in Terrace. Students from other areas would be eligible if the award was not made in the first semester to a Prince Rupert student.
