Rod Hyde Indigenous Award

Rod Hyde devoted more than 30 years to the students and community of Fort McKay as principal of the Fort McKay School. In 2006, Syncrude started the Rod Hyde Indigenous Education Award to honour Rod’s commitment to promoting education and encouraging students.

Every year, Syncrude provides one $2,000 award to an Indigenous student from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo who is pursuing post-secondary education at a recognized post-secondary institution. See below to download the criteria and the application form.
