Indigenous Scholarship Program

Each year, we offer scholarships for Indigenous students residing in Canada near our operating areas who are pursuing a full-time degree, diploma or certified trade. These scholarships are valued at $5,000 and are renewable for up to four years, or to the completion of your degree. The application process for the 2024-2024 Indigenous Scholarship Program is now open English | French.

Our Indigenous Scholarship Program is designed to:

  • Encourage Indigenous students to pursue and complete post-secondary education.
  • Increase the number of Indigenous professionals and role models in communities where we operate.
  • Further the potential for local employment in the oil and gas industry.
  • Give Indigenous students the opportunity to join the Cenovus team through a variety of roles.

At Cenovus, we embrace the opportunity to contribute to the strength and sustainability of the communities where we work and live. We believe that investing in education creates a strong foundation for a bright future.
