Foundation

The Sitnasuak Foundation was established in 1993 as a private nonprofit organization for the purpose of funding scholarships for our shareholders and their descendants (children and grandchildren).  

The Foundation awards higher education and training scholarships to new and continuing students.  Financial assistance is given to individuals seeking a higher education at an accredited college/university or vocational program/school.  Vocational scholarships are also awarded for specialized short-term training programs.

Please click here to access the CACHE application website, and apply electronically. The CACHE website represents a number of regional agencies, including Sitnasuak Foundation, which have partnered together for a combined application to provide a streamlined scholarship process.
