Syncrude scholarship recipient Corie Flett received her law degree from the University of Alberta and now practices locally.


Since starting operations in 1978, Syncrude has provided ongoing financial support towards the educational endeavours of students throughout the province. Our goal is to continue building on this success and ensure even greater accessibility to financial resources in the future. A few examples of educational initiatives include:

  • Indspire (formerly the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards) and the Education Series Career Fair for Aboriginal high school students
  • The Science Alberta Foundation to produce classroom science learning tools for Aboriginal schools in the Wood Buffalo region and beyond
