Savanna Pikuyak Scholarship


Savanna Pikuyak was a strong, kind-hearted, young Inuk woman, who was accepted into the Pre-Health Program at Algonquin College. Savanna worked for three summers as a summer student at the Health Centre in Sanirajak before taking the leap and advancing her studies in the nursing program.

This scholarship has been created in her honour, to recognize Nunavut Inuit who are in Pre-Health program at Nunavut Arctic College. The Department of Health is ensuring that Savanna will never be forgotten by awarding an annual $5,000 scholarship to one student who clearly demonstrates what encouraged them to pursue studies in nursing.

Applications submissions for the new year will be accepted October 2023.
