Ari Evans – Student Award Recipient

Ari Evans is attending University of Alberta and is taking Nursing. Ari received funding from the Horse Lake Education Fund and the Jean Duplessis Family Legacy Fund.

“This award means I do not have to take as much debt on during the course of my education and reduces
my debt load after graduation. I will be able to afford a house and a family and put down roots in Northern Alberta sooner. This award also removes some of the stress associated with school – which is hard enough without having to worry about how to fund it in the first place!”

We are excited to share we have a newer portal that is more barrier free to help students apply for funding and to cut down on time spent applying!

Student Award Applications are now being accepted for the 2022/2023 school year! Visit – for more information and to apply.
