Applications wanted for the Minerva Foundation for BC Women Award

DAWSON CREEK – The Northern Lights College Foundation is accepting applications for the Minerva Foundation for BC Women Award.

The Minerva Education Awards were created to help BC women advance themselves by continuing their education. The awards are intended to assist single mothers to advance their education, re-train mature women returning to the workforce, advance women in pursuing post-graduate studies and assist immigrant and aboriginal women and women with disabilities to overcome educational barriers.

This year, four awards of $1,250 will be made available to any female Northern Lights College student enrolled in full or part time credit courses who demonstrates academic proficiency and has a financial need. Preference will be given to women in non-traditional fields of study, immigrant women, aboriginal women and women with disabilities. Students who wish more information or to apply can contact the Financial Aid Officer at the Northern Lights College campus at which they are registered. The deadline to apply for The Minerva Educational Award for Women is October 1, 2004.
