Scholarships

As part of MindFuel’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2014, scholarships were created to honour the amazing work of three dedicated, long-time MindFuelers who embody the organization’s values.

In 2016, ASTech Foundation added a scholarship to the MindFuel program.

The MindFuel scholarships are an investment in Alberta’s future. They are meant to address challenges facing our province and our country: shortage of knowledge workers focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and the ongoing need to build a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.
