Millar Western has created scholarship opportunities for individuals wishing to further their education within a post-secondary framework:
University of Alberta: Millar Western Leadership Awards
These scholarships, endowed by Millar Western in 1989, are administered and granted by the University of Alberta’s Student Awards Office. Millar Western Entrance and Transfer Leadership Awards are open to students entering undergraduate programs at the U of A, and are awarded on the basis of superior academic achievement and demonstrated leadership qualities. The company’s endowment has grown over time and currently provides $3500 scholarships to 20-25 students per year. More than $2.3 million in Millar Western Leadership Awards have been granted to date, to some 785 recipients.
In 2001, Millar Western contributed to capital enhancements at MacEwan University and established an endowment through which scholarships are awarded each year to B.Sc. and B.Eng. students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement in combination with community involvement. The endowment currently grants $2400 per year in awards.
In 2015, Millar Western contributed to capital enhancements at NAIT and established an endowment through which scholarships will be awarded to students enrolled in Forest Technology and Power Engineering Technology programs. The endowment will provide awards starting in 2016-17.
Millar Western/Alexis Scholarships
Under the Millar Western/Alexis Scholarship program, we award up to six $1,000 scholarships per year, and have granted a total of $67,000 since 2005. Students are selected on the basis of their academic performance, contributions to their community and plans for personal and career development. In 2017, our award recipients were: Mary Kyme-Gilbert, Alexandra Alexis, Jaurie Alexis, Jailyn Van Horne, Lauren Unser, and Jayda Potts.
