Meet Our Northwest Education Fund Winners!
Thank you so much Northwest. My name is Sarah and I’m in my 2nd year of Psychology & Sociology at the University of Alberta. I’m an RA in my residence community and love everything there is about learning and all the different ways you can learn. This scholarship means so much to me and really makes a difference in my life. I appreciate this so much, thank you again!
My name is Andrew and I am 21 years old. After three years of playing junior hockey I am now enrolled at Simon Fraser University. While at SFU I am pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration. I also am the goaltender for our school’s ice hockey team. I am thankful for winning the scholarship as it will allow me to focus on my academics and sport.
I’m a fourth-year English student at the University of Alberta with aspirations to attend law school following my graduation. My interests and research typically revolve around themes of justice, inclusion, and the many amazing ways that humans express themselves through music, art, and literature. I’m a small-town kid, so when I’m not studying, I enjoy exploring the city while searching for a good cup of coffee. Winning this scholarship is means I can focus more on giving back to my community through my writing, participation, and passion. I cannot thank Northwest Tank Lines enough for providing this scholarship.
Hi! I’m Emma, I’m a third year (heading into my fourth and final year) honours Biology student at the University of British Columbia. Currently I’m beginning research for my honours thesis project and my long term plans involve heading to graduate school to research Biomechanics. On the side I’m involved in the outdoor recreation and pottery communities at the university. This award will help me pay for my tuition, which lets me focus on my academic pursuits like research and classes. I’m really grateful to have received so much help for the next academic year!
