We provide financial assistance for northerners pursuing their education goals through a variety of scholarship programmes.
We support a scholarship fund (with three annual scholarships) at the Yellowknife Community Foundation and, in 2018, funded a new scholarship for women in the NWT and Kitikmeot region to pursue post-secondary education in science, technology, engineering and math programs.
Applications will be available in May each year.
We also support scholarships for students nominated by P.W Kaeser, Diamond Jenness Secondary School, St. Patrick High School, and Ecole Sir John Franklin High School who are entering post-secondary studies. Students can contact their school administration to learn more.
Two Diavik scholarships are available at Aurora College, with a focus on the Environment and Natural Resources Technology Program.
Applications for our two Diavik-administered scholarship programmes, Children of Diavik Employees and Post-secondary Scholarships, are accepted annually in August. Application forms can be accessed here.
Additionally, through our Participation Agreements, we are providing scholarship funds to our community partners to administer for their members.
