Young adults are the face of our future and at Gulf & Fraser, we have made a commitment to support their quest for higher education. Annually, we award several scholarships and bursaries to students in our communities.
Preference will be given to students who are members of Gulf & Fraser or who have family who are members; however, all students are eligible to apply if they are in good academic standing and those who demonstrate financial need.
*One award is for a qualified candidate who identifies as an individual of Indigenous ancestry. Should there not be a qualified candidate that fits the criteria, the award will be extended to all students who fulfill the requirements, but who are not of Indigenous ancestry.

Ten scholarships are awarded each year to students who face significant financial barriers to participation in post-secondary education. This may include students who identify as Indigenous, Black, or a person of colour, students living with disabilities, LGBTQIA2S+ students, and students of all gender identities. The intent of the Uggla Family Scholarship is to promote equity and remove historical and existing discrimination, including barriers to full participation in social, cultural, economic and political life.
Available to domestic (Canadian) students admitted for the fall term to any undergraduate degree.
