Scholarships are an important part of our commitment to helping to build safer, stronger and more innovative communities. We believe by supporting students, we're helping to foster the leaders of tomorrow— not just future leaders in our business, but in our communities as well.
In addition to the numerous scholarships and bursaries awarded by our operating companies, Emera awards two scholarships each year— see below for more.
The Chris Huskilson Emera Scholarship was created to honour former Emera President & CEO Chris Huskilson, who retired in 2018. Valued at $40,000, the scholarship is available to an Atlantic Canadian student attending an Atlantic Canadian university in a program related to science (natural), technology, engineering, entrepreneurship or math. Recipients of the scholarship receive $10,000 per year for four years. Recipients are also eligible for a paid 12-week internship and will work with a senior mentor from one of Emera’s companies.
