Sable Island Post-Secondary Award 2021

We are thrilled to introduce a new award – “Inspired by Sable Island” – in partnership with Parks Canada. 

Sable Island has been inspiring people for centuries, and Friends of Sable Island keeps that tradition alive through our education program and by supporting ongoing research and promotion of the island. This new award helps us continue to inspire the hearts and minds of the next generation of young people who will care for Sable Island National Park Reserve.  

Students who have completed at least one year of post-secondary education (in any discipline) and are returning to studies in the fall are eligible to apply. We are offering $500 and a daytrip to Sable Island National Park Reserve to promote learning and awareness of Canada’s 43rd National Park Reserve. Deadline for applications has been extended to 11:59pm Atlantic Time on Thursday September 30, 2021

For more details and the application form see Sable Island Award 2021 Application Form   

NOTE: The daytrip to Sable Island National Park Reserve is subject to scheduling, operational requirements, and as weather permits. The winning applicant will receive the $500 award even if the daytrip must be cancelled.
