Dylan Alexis Memorial Award

The Yukon University Student Union wishes to make a $250 bursary available to a Yukon First Nation student in the trades, with demonstrated financial need.


Dylan Alexis was a twenty-four year old carpentry student, from Kwanlin Dün First Nation, Crow Clan. He was also father to a three and a half month old son when he suddenly passed away. He was determined to work as a carpenter and learn as much as he could about the trade. He was incredibly excited about starting his new career and he was a meticulous craftsperson. This bursary was established in his memory.
