U of L's Cando Partnership Nets Student Scholarship
Faculty of Management student Shermayn Menicoche is one of three people to receive a $3,000 NIEFF scholarship (National Indigenous Economic Education Foundation), from the charitable arm of the Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers (CANDO). Menicoche is originally from Fort Simpson, NWT, and transferred to the U of L from Aurora College in Fort Smith.
CANDO is an aboriginal-controlled, community-based group that builds partnerships with educational institutions, aboriginal leaders and senior corporate and government representatives.
The U of L is now one of nine post-secondary institutions accredited by CANDO to deliver courses that help economic development officers working in First Nations communities obtain an Aboriginal Economic Developer Certificate in addition to their U of L programming.
