Frequently Asked Questions

What documents do I need to submit with my application?

Applicants need to submit four documents:

  • Indigenous card (front and back)
  • grades,
  • proof of enrollment (registered in classes), and
  • letter from Indigenous organization regarding educational funding

What is a letter from my Indigenous organization regarding educational funding?

All students must submit a copy of the official confirmation letter from their First Nation and/or Inuit organization, stating whether you are being sponsored for the 2020-2021 academic year, or not being sponsored. If you are receiving band funding, the letter must provide a breakdown of the amounts you receive for tuition, books, and living allowance as it will reflect the amounts in your budget.

Métis students receiving assistance from their Métis organization are required to submit the document as well.

When will I know the results of my application?

Please note that due to the high volume of applications, only successful students will be notified. Fortunately, you do not need to reapply to the next deadline if you haven’t heard from us. Your application will stay valid for all three deadlines (August 1, November 1 and February 1). You only need to complete the application once per academic year to be considered for all applicable bursaries, scholarships, and awards.
