Nova Scotia Power scholarships are available each year to qualifying students enrolled in trades and degree programs. The specific categories include Mi’kmaq, Environment, Centennial, Trades, Employment Equity, and awards for Employees’ children.

“This scholarship has helped me succeed in reaching my goals, and has helped me through my independent living,” said Salena Sylvester, the 2017 recipient of the Mi’kmaq scholarship.
