Mars Canada partnership drives educational opportunities for Indigenous students


Mars Canada and Indspire announced a new partnership aimed at furthering Indigenous education, including a bursary that will provide $450,000 in financial awards to Indigenous students pursuing post-secondary education.

Through a three-year partnership, Mars Canada will directly support Indspire’s annual Soaring and Building Brighter Futures programs, advancing career development opportunities and offering needs-based bursaries to Indigenous students to further their education. This new initiative will unite Indspire’s mission of educating, connecting, and investing in Indigenous people so they can reach their highest potential, with Mars’ purpose of “building a better world tomorrow, starting today.”

“At Mars, we’re committed to building a better future where everyone thrives and can reach their full potential,” says Chantal Templeton, general manager, Mars Canada. “There is a significant need to drive greater equal opportunities for Indigenous students especially in access to education in Canada. This partnership and new bursary aim to support this endeavour, helping to create a more inclusive future for all.”

The Mars Canada Award for Indigenous Students will be open to students nationally across Canada beginning May 1, 2022.
