QEC Accepting Applications for Laura Ulluriaq Gauthier Scholarship

Qulliq Energy Corporation (QEC) is now accepting applications for the annual Laura Ulluriaq Gauthier Scholarship.

This year QEC increased the number of scholarship awards from one to two recipients. Each $5,000 award supports promising Nunavut students enrolled in post-secondary education while commemorating Laura Ulluriaq Gauthier, a visionary who recognized the importance of a locally managed electrical utility for Nunavut. One of the two scholarships will be awarded to an engineering student, as engineering is a career field in demand at QEC.

The application deadline for the two $5000 scholarships is June 30, 2024.

Nunavut students enrolled in a post-secondary education program for the September 2024 semester are eligible to apply. A selection panel will choose two successful candidates based on their strong academic record, outstanding community involvement, and demonstrated role-model qualities.

Scholarship applications can be downloaded from QEC’s website at www.qec.nu.ca/about/community-involvement. For more information on the scholarship and application process, please contact communications@qec.nu.ca.
