The Roxanne Bunyan MLT and Jeanne Irwin MLA Bursaries
At DynaLIFE Medical Labs, we are committed to our current and future employees, the successful management of our business, and the communities where we live and work. We're proud of all of our achievements, including being named one of Albert's Top 70 Employers for the fifth consecutive year and one of Canada's Best Managed Companies for the sixth consecutive year.
To celebrate, DynaLIFE would like to give back to our community by creating two bursaries:
- To an eligible NAIT Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) student, and
- To an eligible NAIT Medical Laboratory Assisting Program (MLA) student
The Roxanne Bunyan Bursary will cover one year of the MLT program, and the Jeanne Irwin Bursary will cover the entire MLA program, which runs for 22 weeks.
The two new DynaLIFE bursaries have been created to help give two students the funding to help alleviate tuition fees and ensure that they can afford to attend one of NAIT's MLA or MLT programs. The bursaries are available to first and second year NAIT MLA or MLT students, Grade 12 students, and adult learners in good educational standing. Applicants must be or will be enrolled in the MLA or MLT programs at the time the bursary application is made. The recipient of each bursary is based on financial need, with academic considerations.
- New, first, or second year NAIT MLT or MLA students
- Good educational standing
- Enrolled in a NAIT MLA or MLT program at the time of application
How to Apply
Applicants will be asked to submit:
- A letter indicating your current situation
- Why are you applying?
- How would receiving this bursary impact your life?
- An essay (written or video format)
- Expressing how much you value your education and an eventual career in Medical Laboratory Technology. This essay should include both their professional and personal dreams and goals for the future. Essays can be presented in written form or submitted in a video story, whichever the applicant prefers.
- Proof of educational enrollment through the Alberta Post-secondary Application System (APAS).
All short-listed candidates will be interviewed before the two recipients are chosen. DynaLIFE reserves the right to use the names and stories of the bursary winners in future marketing and public relations efforts.
