The University of Northern British Columbia is renewing its partnership with Coastal GasLink for the financial benefit of students.
The university says $180,000 will be invested over the next three years for civil and environmental engineering programs, as well as funding for indigenous students.
CGL Legacy Scholarships will provide 10 awards worth $3,000 each for UNBC civil and environmental engineering students.
Meanwhile, indigenous students enrolled in any undergraduate or graduate program at UNBC are also eligible to apply for awards worth $3,000 each beginning in the fall 2021 semester.
“These awards allow for more students to engage in enriching learning and research opportunities at UNBC,” said UNBC Interim President Dr. Geoff Payne.
“This significant investment meets the local labour market demand for knowledge and skills in engineering and a variety of other disciplines.”
Applications for the scholarships can be submitted for the fall semesters of 2021, 2022, and 2023.
“We’ve been investing in skills development and long-term education programs to support Indigenous and local residents since project planning started and we are proud to partner again with the University of Northern British Columbia," said CGL spokesperson Kiel Giddens.
