“Haylee was integral in establishing the fund in 2014, and the Northwest Territories Legislative Assembly is proud to rename the fund in Haylee’s memory,” a press release stated.
Scholarships are available to people who’ve lived in the NWT for at least 10 years and are pursuing post-secondary studies in political science or related fields like public policy, law, political research, journalism and public administration.
The next application intake will be in April and May 2024.
“We are deeply honoured to rename this fund in honour of Haylee. We look forward to awarding scholarships to individuals in the field of political science who exemplify the enthusiasm, dedication and passion for work and life that clearly Haylee lived in hers,” said Laurie Gault, chair of the Yellowknife Community Foundation.
