Financial Support for Indigenous Students

As part of ongoing recruitment and outreach initiatives, the Indigenous Affairs Unit makes countless visits throughout each year to schools, career fairs and communities across Northern Ontario. Youth are also given opportunities to gain hands-on experience in activities related to the health and science fields.

Indigenous students are encouraged to use the resources available to acquire funding in the form of bursaries and scholarships:

Indian and Northern Affairs Canada Aboriginal Bursary System
Offered through Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) the Aboriginal Bursary System is available to provide Aboriginal students with a valuable tool to facilitate the pursuit of post-secondary studies.

Aboriginal Multi-Media Society (AMMSA)
An online resource for locating Aboriginal scholarship and bursary opportunities, the AMMSA boasts a wealth of links to a large number of organizations offering bursaries and scholarships.

The Canadian Medical Foundation
Designed to help students combat the ever-increasing costs of a medical education and avoid the heavy debt loads often associated with post-secondary education.

Métis Nation of Ontario
The Métis Student Bursary Program was established in 1998 to assist Métis students in their pursuit of post-secondary education. With a total endowment of 4.2 million across Ontario, there are 32 colleges and universities currently participating in the Métis Student Bursary Program (MSBP) within Ontario.

National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation
