Nunatsiaq News offers bursaries to encourage Inuit writers

Once again, Nunatsiaq News is investing in Inuit journalists.

This year marks the third straight year where the newspaper has offered two $5,000 bursaries that help Inuit students study journalism, communications or other related subjects at the post-secondary level.

The bursaries are funded through a partnership with Indspire, a national charity that provides financial support to Inuit, First Nations and Métis students, through its Building Better Futures program. Indspire administers the bursaries, including the management of the application process and selection of recipients.
