The Future Leaders Awards are based on academic merit and targeted at top students with a GPA of 3.0 or greater and who meet other excellence criteria as determined by their respective institutions.

"This program rewards and fosters demonstrated excellence," says Banting. "TECTERRA is proud to support such a great program that builds key talent for our province." Awards of $1,000 or $2,000 each are available annually to students entering their second/third year of study at the following institutions in Alberta: Lethbridge Community College; Mount Royal University; Northern Alberta Institute of Technology; Olds College; Southern Alberta Institute of Technology; University of Alberta; University of Calgary; and University of Lethbridge. The number, size and timing of the annual award, as well as other pertinent terms and conditions vary by institution.
