Once more, the primary goal of this year’s tournament is to provide support in the form of bursaries/scholarships for students enrolled in an accredited college or university. SCEDC believes that education is a key component to a self sustaining and healthy community and would like to recognize the hard work and commitment that First Nations students put into their studies. We are proud to announce our partnership with Indspire, a national registered charity that invests in the Education of Indigenous people for the long-term benefit of students, their families, communities, and Canada.
Last year SCEDC was able to award 15 scholarships worth $45,000 to Post Secondary Students who are members of communities associated with the Southern Chiefs Organization (SCO). This year, our goal is to contribute a total value of $75,000 in educational scholarships. All proceeds will be matched dollar for dollar through funding from the Federal Government, doubling the impact of your contribution. Scholarships will be distributed to eligible First Nations Students who are currently attending an accredited post-secondary educational institution.
The SCEDC Annual Golf Tournament is an excellent way to take part in a friendly game of golf. As a sponsor you can play a key role in providing First Nations Students who are members of SCO communities with an opportunity to improve their educational experience. Sponsorship is a very positive way to advertise your organization among the Southern Chiefs Communities and to SCEDC’s followers, supporters, and partners. Above all, with your help we can provide real opportunity in education for First Nations People.
