Dear Members,

We would like to remind you that NWTT is now accepting applications for our 2024 Tourism Scholarships Program, which includes a total of 3 scholarships. To apply, please submit the application form via email to before 5 pm MT Wednesday, July 31, 2024. 

To facilitate the application process this year, we have created two different flyers: 

  • Click here to download the 2024 NWT Tourism & Rio Tinto Scholarships flyer with the QR code redirecting to the application form. 
  • Click here to download the flyer containing the scholarships description but NO QR code. 

Please feel free to print and post and/or share the flyer(s).

Again this year, NWTT will be awarding 3 scholarships: the Rio Tinto Indigenous Student Scholarship, and two NWTT scholarships, one of which priority will be given to an Indigenous NWT resident student.

To recognize the importance of the aviation industry to the tourism industry, the NWT Tourism Board of Directors has added flight school and Aircraft Maintenance Engineer training, in addition to tourism and hospitality programs, as eligibility criteria for our scholarships.

We couldn't offer this scholarship program without the generosity of our members - thank you!

Please take a moment to share this information with anyone that you think may be interested, and if you have any questions please feel free to reach out at any time. 

All the best,

Donna Lee Demarcke
Chief Executive Officer
NWT Tourism
