The Strike Group Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Scholarship Program will contribute to the creation of a critical mass of talented students that will fully represent our industry—it will provide an environment in which all can thrive academically and professionally. We believe everyone has a right to education, and we are committed to providing people in historically underrepresented groups with financial aid.
Annually, Strike is offering $2,000 EDI scholarships for students:
• Women in Energy Scholarship,
• Canadian Immigrant Scholarship,
• Indigenous Scholarship,
• LGBTQ2S+ Scholarship, and
• Western Canadian Scholarship.
The Strike Group Western Canadian Scholarship intends to promote inclusion by providing a scholarship that is open to all students living in Western Canada. Inclusion is the practice of providing everyone with equal access to opportunities and resources. Strike would like all people living in Western Canada to feel safe and respected. We aim to ensure that everybody’s voices are heard and that we are creating a welcoming work environment.
