Aboriginal Education Awards Program

The Husky Aboriginal Education Awards are bursaries awarded to Aboriginal students who strive to achieve greater career success by pursuing education. These awards are available to all Aboriginal students enrolled in high school and post-secondary institutions. The selection committee bases its decision on academic achievement and on how the individuals desired career path relates to the petroleum industry. There are no age restrictions and every application is judged on its own merit.


Husky believes that education is paramount in developing and sustaining a successful community.


Husky awards bursaries to six new recipients each year. The bursaries are as follows:


Number of Bursaries
Award per School Year
University (maximum four years of funding)
Community/Technical College (maximum two years of funding)
Secondary School (maximum one year of funding)


The bursaries are awarded to each recipient during the last week of August. Once selected, each recipient receives a bursary each year until the program of study is completed, provided that the criteria for the Educational Awards Program is met (i.e., one year for a secondary diploma, two years for a college/technical school diploma or four years for a university degree).


Recipients do not reapply for their bursaries in subsequent years. They must, however, provide Aboriginal Affairs with an official transcript of their marks for their previous year of study and a letter of acceptance or proof of full-time registration from their selected educational institution for the upcoming school year, by August 15.


Students who have received a bursary for secondary school and have successfully completed their program must re-apply for a bursary to pursue a two-year college, technical school program, or university program. Two-year college or technical school program graduates must re-apply for a bursary if they wish to continue their education in a university program.



Aboriginal Mentorship Program

Aboriginal Scholarship Award winners are eligible to take part in the Aboriginal Mentorship Program. The Mentorship program aims to mentor high-achieving Aboriginal students in various academic disciples.


Under the four-month Aboriginal Mentorship program, scholarship recipients are mentored in their field of study by senior-level Husky professionals.


The program runs from May to August. Students completing their first work term are eligible for consideration in next year’s Mentorship Program.


If you would like to be considered for the program, apply for the Aboriginal Education Awards program.


Applications for each year must be completed and returned to Husky Energy by May 31.
