MLT Aikins is pleased to announce that Jorie Halcro, a law student at the University of Saskatchewan, has been awarded the inaugural MLT Aikins Indigenous Scholarship in the amount of $6,000.
Jorie was one of many highly qualified applicants from across Canada who applied for the scholarship, which is awarded to second-year law students. Choosing a winner was not easy, but Jorie has positioned herself for a bright future in the legal profession through her tenacity and dedication, as well as her academic achievements.
“We are thrilled to award our first MLT Aikins Indigenous Scholarship to Jorie,” said Aaron Runge, managing partner of MLT Aikins. “We would like to congratulate her on this significant achievement, and we look forward to seeing what she accomplishes next.”
MLT Aikins announced the launch of its Indigenous Scholarship last year to recognize Indigenous law students’ achievements and contributions to the community.
“We are committed to promoting Indigenous perspectives and representation in the legal community,” said Josh Morrison, a partner in the MLT Aikins Indigenous practice group. “We consistently work to foster a learning environment that supports Indigenous success in the legal profession and beyond.”
MLT Aikins congratulates Jorie on this accomplishment, and looks forward to recognizing Indigenous law students’ achievements through our Indigenous Scholarship program in the years to come.
