NCC is now accepting applications for two bursaries for university or college students who are members of NunatuKavut. The application deadline is August 31, 2018.

Bernie Heard Memorial Bursary – $1000

This bursary was named in honour of Bernie Heard. Bernie was an active member of NunatuKavut (formerly Labrador Metis Nation) who passed away in January of 2008. Bernie was a great musician and especially loved to perform music from his culture. He was also very active in historical and genealogy research and his work contributed greatly to the foundation of our membership systems.
