Inter Pipeline has been giving back to the community for over 16 years by way of their bursary program called Discovery Awards.
In East Central Alberta, three recipients were selected including Jarret Nelson of Veteran, Wade Black of Brownfield and Justin Wu of Sedgewick.
This program supports youth who reside in communities where Inter Pipeline operates in, by providing scholarships to high school students who are pursuing a post-secondary education in an industry-related field.
Examples of an industry-related field include anything from Accounting to Engineering Technology or Business to a Millwright and Welder.
The Awards are granted to high school students who have demonstrated academic achievement and community support and have a financial need.
In addition to the first-year post-secondary students receiving grants, these same students can apply for an additional award for their second year of post-secondary education.
In 2019, 47 bursaries of $2,000 were awarded to students in communities all over Alberta and Saskatchewan.
The total funds distributed through the program was $94,000 this year.
