Two Drumheller students have received scholarships to pursue their post-secondary education, thanks to Inter Pipeline’s Bursary program.
For the last 16 years, Inter Pipeline has given back to the community by way of its awards program called Discovery Awards. In 2019 Harrison Martynes, graduate of DVSS and Andrew Germain, who graduated from St. Anthony’s School, received the scholarships.
The Discovery Award is given to students in industry-related fields which can include anything from accounting to engineering technology, or business to a millwright and welder. The awards criteria includes demonstrated academic achievement, community support, and financial needs.
In addition to first-
year students receiving the grants, the same student can apply for additional awards for their second year of post-secondary education.
This year 47 awards of $2,000 were awarded by Inter Pipeline to students in communities in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The total distributed through the program this year was $94,000.
The process of application is completed through the school that the student attends.
