Apply Now: Michelle Pockey Leadership Award

We’re pleased to announce that the 2017 Michelle Pockey Leadership award is now open for applications. Michelle was a dear friend and supporter of Minerva BC who believed in the power of the individual to make a difference.

This year’s leadership award will give first priority to an Indigenous woman, a single mother, or a woman facing economic hardship. Second priority will be given to a woman pursuing law, justice, Indigenous, or environmental studies. The award is intended to support tuition, housing, or childcare in the pursuit of post-secondary education, which will advance the applicant’s leadership and long-term career prospects.

The application form can be downloaded here and is due on July 31.
