Introducing Baffinland and QIA’s 2017 Scholarships

August 17, 2017

Education and training is an important part of Baffinland’s commitments to the North Baffin communities. We support and encourage the pursuit of post-secondary education and recognize the importance of learning and development as a pillar to the ongoing development of the North Baffin communities and all of Nunavut.

In association with the Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA), Baffinland is happy to introduce our 2017 scholarships. The scholarships are awarded on an annual basis for Nunavut Inuit who are registered with Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. and pursuing a post-secondary education.
