Twenty-two Nunavut students were presented with Technical Professional Scholarships this year. The awards were announced in the Legislative Assembly of Nunavut on March 5, 2013 by the Hon. Lorne Kusugak, Minister of Community and Government Services.

"I extend my congratulations on behalf of all members of this House to this year’s recipients of the Technical Professional Studies Scholarship, and wish them the best of success as they continue their post-secondary education," he said in the Assembly.

Three Nunavut Arctic College Environmental Technology Program students, Sileema Angoyuak, Silu Colleen Tugak and Karlene Napavok were among this year's recipients.

The scholarships are awarded annually to full-time students taking programs in universities, colleges and technical Schools in subjects such as engineering,  informatics, community planning, business studies, as well as college programs for firefighting, training and prevention and administration.

"Scholarships are awarded to Nunavut Land Claim Agreement Beneficiaries and non-Beneficiary students for four years of continuous full-time study, beginning with a scholarship of $2,500 in their first year, $3,000 in their second year, $4000 in their third year, and $5,000 in their fourth year," Minister Kusugak said.

The total amount awarded this year is seventy- five thousand dollars ($75,000).

"We are pleased to provide these deserving students with assistance in pursuing their post-secondary education in technical and professional careers," said Kusugak. "These scholarships will help to alleviate some of the Students financial cost of pursuing higher education and will allow them to concentrate on their field of study. The end result is that we look forward to them returning to Nunavut to continue their careers for the benefit of Nunavummiut."

Nunavut Arctic College and the Nunavut Research Institute would like to express our thanks to the Government of Nunavut's Department of Community and Government Services and Minister Kusugak for making this scholarship possible, and for their strong support of Nunavut students.
