NTI Launches Interpreter Translator Student Award

Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. (NTI) President Cathy Towtongie today launched the Interpreter Translator Student Award for first and second year students enrolled in Nunavut Arctic College’s Interpreter Translator Diploma Program.

The new award is based on academic merit and provides one first year student and one second year student each with $1,000. The successful recipients are chosen by program instructors.

This year’s recipients are Andrea Duffy (first year), who is participating in the Inuktitut Interpreter Translator Diploma Program in Rankin Inlet, and Lorraine Bolt (second year), who completed her second year and graduated from the Inuinnaqtun Interpreter Translator Diploma Program.

“NTI is fully committed to helping Inuktut thrive in our territory. I am so honoured to be able to support these students in their studies. They should be commended for the role they are playing in preserving our language and culture,” said Towtongie.

NTI also provides work placement practicums for students in the program.
