AGILITY serves students in all disciplines and faculties, with a focus on providing students with resources to enable transformative and innovative research with cultural, social and economic benefits for Alberta and beyond. One such support is the Bruce McKillop AGILITY Award in Small and Family Business.
The Bruce McKillop AGILITY Awards in Small and Family Business are for qualified continuing undergraduate students with an interest or current involvement in innovation and/or entrepreneurship related to small business or family business.
Applicants are invited to submit the paper application in addition to one of the following options:
Current engagement in activities related to small business or family business (e.g. Junior Achievement, Canadian Youth Business Foundation, Community Futures, Chinook Entrepreneur Challenge, self-initiated).
Proposal for a project or research in an entrepreneurial endeavour or innovative development in small business or family business (e.g. small businesses in rural communities, family business succession, innovation in multigenerational businesses, etc.)
The Bruce McKillop AGILITY Award in Small and Family Business is valued at $1,500. Up to two scholarships will be awarded in the 2016/2017 academic year.
These opportunities are made possible through the generous philanthropic gift of one of southern Alberta’s most prominent entrepreneurs, Mr. Bruce McKillop. With Mr. McKillop’s vision as the foundation for this award, the University of Lethbridge AGILITY program is excited to be advancing opportunities to educate future generations in small business and family business innovation and entrepreneurship.
Deadline for applications is March 1, 2017.
