Keyano College is getting a big donation to help start an Indigenous Education Bridging Support Program.
Scotiabank is donating $400,000 to the school which will help provide bursaries to Indigenous learners in the region looking to start a career in their field of choice.
“We are extremely grateful to Scotiabank for these important contributions to Keyano College. Scotiabank is an important, ongoing friend and sponsor,” said Tracy Edwards, President and CEO.
“Donors like Scotiabank are the catalyst that allows us to help our students achieve their goals and subsequently the needs of their communities.”
Keyano will use $100,000 of the donation for the program as Scotiabank will donate $25,000 annual over the next four-years.
The remaining $300,000 will be used to support their business programs.
Scotiabank will now sponsor the annual Case Competitions. This competition is open to all business students with the winning team getting the chance to represent Keyano at the Alberta Dean’s Competition.
Scotiabank will donate $75,000 each year, over the next four-years.
As part of the sponsorship, Keyano will now offer eight annual scholarships of $2,500, rewarding students for academic achievements.
