NINE NEW $700 AWARDS FOR LAMPS MEMBERS AND FIRST NATIONS, M√ČTIS AND INUIT LAMPS MEMBERS



NINE NEW $700 AWARDS FOR LAMPS MEMBERS AND FIRST NATIONS, MÉTIS AND INUIT LAMPS MEMBERS

 The Laurentian Association of Mature and Part-time Students (LAMPS) primary focus this year is the “Education is a Right” campaign. Students in Ontario pay the highest tuition fees, study in the largest classes and are funded less on a per capita basis than students in other provinces (CFS-Ontario, 2011). Coupled with the rising costs of education are the unique challenges faced by many mature and part-time students. They often wear many hats in their roles as students, parents, partners, spouses, employers and employees, all while trying to achieve their educational goals.

In addition to fighting back rising education costs, LAMPS wanted to give back to its members by creating financial assistance annually to LAMPS members enrolled at Laurentian University. Commencing this Spring 2012 session, LAMPS members can apply for either the LAMPS First Nations, Métis and Inuit Recognition Award or the LAMPS Recognition Awards. These awards have been developed to recognize Laurentian Association of Mature and Part-Time First Nations, Métis and Inuit Students and Non-First Nations Student members who not only excel academically but also go beyond within the community. 

These awards are funded by the Laurentian Association of Mature and Part-Time Students (LAMPS) and are awarded annually to part-time Envision or on-campus and/or full-time Envision students enrolled in any program at Laurentian University.  Three awards will be given per session (fall, winter, spring), totalling nine awards disbursed annually.  One award per term will be designated as a First Nations, Métis and Inuit award.

Recipients must be in good academic standing with a minimum average of 70% within the last semester.  Recipients must demonstrate examples of strong community involvement and superior initiative within their participation in extra-curricular activities.   Applicants are required to submit a letter (maximum 500 words) indicating in detail how they meet the criteria for these awards.

The value of each award is $700.  Selection of award recipients shall be made by the Student Awards Office at Laurentian University based on the criteria identified above. 


To apply for these awards, please visit the Laurentian University Student Awards website at http://laurentian.ca/Laurentian/Home/Departments/Student+Awards/Financial+Aid.htm?Laurentian_Lang=en-CA or call the Student Awards office at (705) 675-1151 or toll free  at 1-800-461-4030.
