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. Scholarships will be distributed to eligible First Nations Students who are currently attending an accredited post-secondary educational institution.
The SCEDC Southern First Nations Scholarship will be will be distributed to students who are status members of one of the 34 Southern Chiefs’ Organization Communities attending post-secondary institutions with proven financial need for contribution to education costs. The SCEDC Southern First Nations Scholarship is a combination of funds raised from our SCEDC golf tournament (on June 16, 2020), as well as a matched donation from Indspire. A limited number scholarships are available and we encourage you to apply now! See link below for further scholarship criteria. Please note the application deadline is August 1, 2020 at 11:59 PM.
