BHP and Carlton Trail College are teaming up once again to provide eligible students with scholarships through BHP’s 2023 Jansen Project Scholarship Program. Carlton Trail College administers the program on behalf of BHP. Applications for the scholarship program opened on May 1.
The scholarship program was created to support local students who are starting their journey through postsecondary education. Since 2012, BHP has awarded over $647,000 in scholarships to 249 student recipients.
“At Jansen we are building the mine of the future, which means we are also helping to build the workforce of the future. Now in the eleventh year of the Jansen Project Scholarship Program we are thrilled to continue to play a part in local students fulfilling their post-secondary goals,” said Simon Thomas, President Potash, BHP.
“As an educational partner, we are pleased to continue to support access to further education and training for regional students by administering BHP’s scholarship program,” said Amy Yeager, Carlton Trail College’s President and CEO.
The application deadline is June 15, 2023.
