Min­is­ter of Ad­vanced Ed­u­ca­tion and Skills Kevin O’Brien said “This fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance will sup­port them in their stud­ies, which will help meet a grow­ing labour de­mand in New­found­land and Labrador. These scholarshi­ps as­sist stu­dents and the prov­ince to en­sure we have the highly qual­i­fied grad­u­ates needed for this fast-grow­ing econ­omy.”
