From coast to coast, McElhanney acknowledges the Indigenous territories we work and reside on. We strive to be trusted partners with Indigenous communities across Western Canada, and we are proud of the Indigenous talent that we employ.
With an ongoing commitment to honour, respect, and hear the voices of Indigenous peoples, our mission is to partner with Indigenous talent who are considering a career in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM), Business Support Services, or Administration Services. The McElhanney Indigenous Talent Scholarship provides Indigenous students and intergenerational community members with the option of completing or upgrading their education while engaging in hands-on training to support their long-term career goals.
Selected recipients who are interested in completing an education program are awarded up to $5,000 to use towards tuition, textbooks, supplies, and living expenses (on-campus accommodations). Alternatively, intergenerational community members who choose to focus on hands-on career experience (forgo education option) with McElhanney will be awarded the same amount to use towards career training or as a donation to an Indigenous-owned business, charity, or cause within their local community.
This scholarship is open year-round, with the opportunity to join McElhanney as a full-time employee or co-op student during our regular recruitment cycles (winter, summer, and fall).
