Notes
"Two Canadian Indigenous Anglican theological students have received a financial boost as a result of a recent decision by the diocese of Western Newfoundland. In December 2016, the two students, Sharon Campbell and Aaron Sault, were each awarded $20,000 to fund their studies. The one-time bursaries were created mostly from money returned to the diocese of Western Newfoundland from Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement funds". "The diocese forwarded the funds to the Anglican Church of Canada's national office with the idea that they go toward bursaries for Indigenous theology students". "Many other dioceses across Canada have been putting the funds returned to them under the settlement agreement into reconciliation projects".
