One of the most important factors for FAAY
is need as opposed to best grades," said Williams.
Previous winners of a FAAY
bursary are not eligible.
Corporate sponsors who support FAAY
will award over $292,000 in scholarships and bursaries to Aboriginals (Status, Non-Status, Metis and Inuit).
The program provides students with a sort of one-stop-shopping option-they complete just one application form in order to be considered for all the scholarships and bursaries managed by FAAY
on behalf of the many companies involved in the program.
In 1998, corporate sponsors who support FAAY
will award $84,500 in bursaries and scholarships.
And some of them are doing FAAY
as well, so it becomes a very important package that they can implement within the organization in the sense that if they're doing the scholarship program, FAAY
, then they're investing in the future of Aboriginal youth.
