April 21, 2022, FREDERICTON (GNB) – For the sixth consecutive year, Opportunities NB (ONB) is inviting high school graduates enrolled in New Brunswick post-secondary institutions to apply for one of our 10 NB Proud Awards worth $1,000 each. The awards will be presented to 10 graduates from across New Brunswick’s five economic regions to support their post-secondary educational goals in any way they choose.

“Retaining students is critical to the long-term growth and prosperity of our economy,” said CEO Sadie Perron. “Business success is dependent on continued access to a talented, skilled, and knowledgeable workforce. ONB is proud to continue its support of New Brunswick students as they explore their interests, pursue their goals, and reach new heights here in their home province.”

Applicants are asked to submit a brief essay on one of three topics about what they learned in high school, why they chose to attend a New Brunswick post-secondary institution, or what/who inspired their choice in career or program. They will also be asked to take and submit a creative photo that relates to their essay response.

All applications are due by Sunday, May 15th at 11:59 PM. Any questions about the NB Proud Awards can be directed to award@onbcanada.ca.
