NB Proud: 10 Bursaries for 10 New Brunswick Students!

April 11, 2017

April 11, 2017. In support of New Brunswick’s workforce strategy, Opportunities NB wants to help New Brunswick students live and work in the province following graduation.

What is their first stop on that employment path? One of New Brunswick’s fine universities, public or private colleges.

The NB Proud Bursary

This summer, ONB’s Board of Directors will award 10 #NBProud bursaries valued at $1,000 each to New Brunswick students entering their first year of post-secondary education in this province.

The future looks bright in New Brunswick, and a $1,000 scholarship can help make it even brighter!

Students have two options for applying:

  1. In a 300-500 word essay, based on your research, what support is currently available to enable you to pursue a career and have a bright future in New Brunswick? What initiatives do you feel ONB could undertake to ensure you find career success in New Brunswick after graduation?
  2. In a 30-60 second video, pretend you are an expert on population growth and you are being interviewed on the news.

Mention the initiatives currently underway:

  1. to support New Brunswick’s youth in education and career development, and
  2. to create worthwhile job opportunities.

Application Process (PDF format).

Applications will be accepted until May 1, 2017.
