Jose Amaujaq Kusugak Scholarship Application Period Opens
April 03, 2017
Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) President Aluki Kotierk announced today that the Jose Amaujaq Kusugak Scholarship 2017 application period is now open.
NTI will award two Inuit students each with a $5,000 scholarship to pursue studies at accredited post-secondary institutions in the areas of Inuit language and education. Students studying in other areas are eligible if they demonstrate a link between their field of study and the pursuit and promotion of Inuit rights.
“I remember the late Jose Kusugak’s passion and dedication to the preservation of Inuit rights through education and the protection of our language rights. By providing this scholarship to students every year, NTI is assisting Inuit with gaining the education needed to ensure that Inuktut language rights remain central throughout Nunavut,” said Kotierk.
Eligible post-secondary institutions include Nunavut Arctic College or academic institutions in southern Canada. An NTI jury reviews the applications and selects students based on their fields of study, written essay, and references.
NTI developed the scholarship in cooperation with Kusugak family to ensure the late Jose Kusugak’s legacy continues to inspire Inuit. Additional information and application forms are available on the NTI website. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is July 9, 2017.
