We've partnered with Indspire to increase the reach of our annual Student Achievement Awards.
Each year OFNTSC gives out 5 Student Achievement Awards, which includes three memorial awards. The memorial awards are named after close friends of the OFNTSC who have left an indelible mark in our communities:
- The Derrick Kamanga Memorial Award is presented to a First Nations student studying engineering in the area of water and wastewater;
- The Robert Olivier Memorial Award is presented to a student studying engineering in any specialization (civil, mechanical, chemical);
- The Jay Benedict Memorial Award, which will be given to a student who is completing their studies in the area of architecture/housing.
In addition to the memorial awards, OFNTSC also gives out two general Student Achievement awards to First Nations students who are studying environmental sciences/technology, mathematics, or any other STEM-related technical career that will help build self-reliance in First Nations communities.
Each award consists of an honorarium worth $2,000 and an invitation to attend a special OFNTSC event (all expenses paid) to accept the award in person.
