Qulliit created this bursary out of a need to provide leadership skills to young women across Nunavut. This opportunity gives young women a change to meet other young people from across Canada and learn the vast opportunities there are for young women when planning and developing their future careers. 

These bursaries are open to young women aged 14 – 17, to support their participation at Encounters With Canada (www.ewc-rdc.ca), a week-long program in Ottawa to meet accomplished Canadians, explore exciting career options, develop their civic leadership skills and experience a week of living with youth from other parts of Canada.

Each $500 bursary (6 in total) will assist with registration fees as all other expenses are covered through Encounters With Canada.

Please attach your application to Encounters With Canada.  If you are chosen to receive a bursary it will be sent directly to Encounters With Canada and you will be notified by phone.

Each year these bursaries will be distributed evenly across the 3 regions of Nunavut.
