DEHCHO FIRST NATIONS
Memorial Awards & Scholarships Policy
Dehcho First Nations Memorial Awards & Scholarships were established in 1995 by the Dehcho First Nations Leadership. It was the vision then, and continues today, that Dehcho Dene descendants confidently pursue post-secondary education. The Dehcho First Nations’ goal is for Dehcho descendants to take advantage of post-secondary education and achieve equitable representation in post-secondary institutions.
These Memorial Awards and Scholarships provides support for advancement of Dehcho Dene. The goals for Dehcho descendants are self-reliance, self-determination and well-being. This goal is achieved by supporting the education and training of our Dehcho descendants in post-secondary education. It is the hope these individuals will come home to the Dehcho to help build capacity and lead our First Nation into a healthy future.
The deadline for all Awards & Scholarships is June 30th annually, except the Leo Norwegian Scholarship which expires on August 31, 2020.
