The Galore Creek Mining Corporation offers a number of bursaries to support Tahltan members who wish to pursue post-secondary education. Bursaries are available for university and college programs, and trades at accredited institutions.
Academic bursaries are granted to students enrolled in a university degree program or university transfer courses (towards a degree program) or a two-year diploma program at a community college.
Non-Academic & trades bursaries are granted to students 18 years and older, enrolled in any accredited post-secondary course or programs (that are not associated with a university degree program). Students younger than 18 may be considered if they are accepted into an accredited trades program. Eligible programs also include BC Adult Graduation Diplomas and General Education Development Certificates.
Bursaries are awarded based on academic achievement, community involvement, as well as educational and career goals. Bursaries are not restricted to educational programs directly related to mining, but special consideration is given to applicants whose career goals relate to the mining industry.
The Ann M Ball Bursary was established in honour of Ann’s contribution to the Galore Creek Project, the mining industry and the Tahltan nation. This Bursary is intended to support Tahltan who are emerging or active leaders within their community, who are pursuing a post-secondary education and endeavor to give back to their community and Nation.
