One thousand dollars each were awarded to University of Waterloo student, Alicia Blore, and Laurier students Marie Louise Larivière and Kristy Dockstader. These students received the SUNDANCe bursary, an award presented to Aboriginal Students attending Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo, or the University of Guelph and who have demonstrated active involvement in the Aboriginal community.

Senior Advisor: Aboriginal Initiatives, Jean Becker, emphasized the importance of giving back to the aboriginal community, " The local Aboriginal community conceived of and raised the funds for the SUNDANCe award to help support our students achieve a university education. We are so pleased to award it to our students each year who are making a difference in the community and who are important  role models for our youth. ".
