INKAS to award two $1,500 scholarships

INKAS Armored Vehicle Manufacturing has launched the “Rising Star” scholarship program.



Two awards will be granted to post-secondary students who show “promise and excellence” in business and engineering.

Winning students will each receive $1,500 and be enrolled in a mentorship program in spring 2019, which will allow them to meet and learn from experts in their chosen field and gain experience at an INKAS office location.  

“As a young student, it can be difficult to break into your chosen field. This program is intended to help business and engineering students reach their career goals by offering them the learning and mentorship opportunities needed to move forward on the path to success,” said INKAS CEO David Khazanski.

Eligible students will be full-time students enrolled or intending to enrol in engineering or business courses as of September 2018 at an accredited university in Canada or the U.S.

Appropriate documentation, including school transcripts or an invitation or letter of acceptance from the institution, is required. Eligible candidates will maintain a minimum 75 per cent average, and be either Canadian citizens, U.S. citizens, permanent residents of Canada, green card holders or student visa holders with supportive documentation.

As part of the application process, students will be required to write a 750-word essay detailing their personal story, why they deserve the scholarship, why either engineering or business is important in North America, and how they believe they can make a difference in their field.  

Students can apply here until Nov. 30, 2018. Recipients of both scholarships will be announced on or near Dec. 15, 2018.
