Scholarship Opportunity: "Indigenous Awards"
Higher level education can be very empowering and take young leaders to new heights, but is often expensive! Educational support comes in many forms, including financial, so today’s blog post highlights the Irving K. Barber Society’s “Indigenous Awards” scholarship opportunity. In the future, all educational funding related posts will be collected in the “Scholarships” category so that readers can find them again later.
About: The Indigenous Awards (https://www.ikbbc.ca/indigenous-awards/about-this-award/ ) are a group of scholarships aimed at new students who are Métis, First Nations and/or Inuit and live in BC. Of particular interest to our older students may be the BC Indigenous Student Awards, which have options at Apprentice/Certificate/Diploma ($1000-$2000), Undergraduate Degree ($3000), and Graduate Degree ($5000) levels.
Deadline: May 16th
Eligibility: To be eligible, one must be:
A resident of B.C.
Canadian Citizen, permanent resident (landed immigrant), convention refugee, or protected person living in Canada;
