In collaboration with our partners at MindFuel, we proudly announce the ASTech Scholarship!
This award is for Alberta high school graduates entering the first year of a STEM program at a post-secondary institution in Alberta in September, 2017.
Applicants will be asked to write a short essay on their passion for science, technology or innovation. Their involvement in science fairs, Junior Achievement, 4H and other community activities will be considered an asset.
Applications for the 2018 ASTech Scholarship are now open. Click here to apply.
$2,500 will be awarded to the successful student, as jointly selected by the MindFuel/ASTech panel. In 2018, two awards will be made: the ASTech Scholarship and the ASTech-GrowSafe Systems Scholarship, in honour of Dr. Terry Rachuk, PhD.
MindFuel launched a successful scholarship program in 2014, as part of their 25th anniversary celebrations. We are delighted to partner on this program and by doing so, we jointly reduce administration and marketing costs which allows us to put more resources into the hands of bright young students in Alberta.
In 2017, the ASTech Scholarship was awarded to Chloe Devoy (right), a University of Lethbridge student who is passionate about science, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, sports, wellness and volunteering.
We respectfully ask you to invest in the future of Alberta through the ASTech Scholarship by supporting students interested in STEM, innovation and entrepreneurship. Your minimum donation of $100 will generate a tax receipt from MindFuel and recognition for your support from both organizations.
