Scholarships awarded annually to currently enrolled students studying for a career in aviation and related fields
Four aviation program students from Nunavut will be getting some help to complete their studies.
Economic Development and Transportation Minister David Akeeagok announced in the legislative assembly Wednesday that Jukipa Kotierk, Nqobile Mazorodze, Ronald Oolooyuk and Derek Fredlund are recipients of Simata Pitsiulak Aviation Scholarships.
The $7,500 scholarship is awarded to Nunavut students currently enrolled in aviation studies programs.
Fredlund said he couldn’t believe the news when he first learned of it via an email from the government.
