src expands mentorship program for indigenous post-secondary students


The following news release was issued by the Saskatchewan Research Council. The media event coincided with National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21.

Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) is formalizing the expansion of a mentorship program for Indigenous post-secondary students, while at the same time celebrating the success the program has seen in its first four years. 

Through SRC’s Aboriginal Mentorship Program (AMP), First Nations, Inuit and Métis post-secondary students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) can connect with an SRC mentor in the same or similar disciplines and gain work experience through a hands-on summer job at SRC.

Since its inception in 2015, fifteen students have been welcomed into the program – two of which accepted permanent, full-time employment with SRC upon graduation and are still with the organization today.

“SRC is proud to continue fostering Indigenous participation in the STEM disciplines through our Aboriginal Mentorship Program,” SRC Mining and Minerals Vice-President Craig Murray said. “Because of both our mentors and students’ efforts, along with the support of our partners, this program has achieved significant success in just three short years. To be able to expand on that will help to ensure this program’s continued future success.”
