AFOA-PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards are open to Aboriginal youth in grades 11 and 12. Winners attend AFOA Canada's National Conference and participate in a special Youth program designed to introduce youth to careers in Aboriginal finance and management.

There is a huge demand both within Aboriginal communities and off-reserve for Aboriginal financial management professionals. However, very few of our young people are pursuing an education in financial management after high school. 

That is why AFOA Canada and PotashCorp have come together and we are proud to present The 9th Annual AFOA-PotashCorp Aboriginal Youth Financial Management Awards Now open to Aboriginal youth in grades 11 and 12. 

Students are asked to submit a 1,500 word essay on the questions noted in the application form and submit 2 letters of recommendation. 

Recipients will attend AFOA Canada's 15th Anniversary National Conference which is being hosted in Winnipeg, Manitoba this year and will also participate in a special 4 day youth program designed to introduce youth to careers in Aboriginal finance and management.

Successful Recipients are also eligible for a $5,000 scholarship.

Deadline to Apply is: Monday, December 1, 2014.
