The Amiskusees: Semaganis Worme Family Foundation acknowledges the barriers Indigenous students face while pursuing post-secondary education away from home - wherever in the world that that may be. There are few scholarships available today that specifically support Indigenous Canadian students studying outside of Canada, similarly for international Indigenous students studying within Canada. We have been listening to you and we have created a scholarship to address this need.
This scholarship is intended to provide financial support to students who are studying outside of Canada and international students with a valid student visa who are studying in Canada.
Two successful applicants will receive a $2,000 scholarship.
The deadline to submit applications is February 17, 2017, 5:00 p.m. CST.
1. The applicant should be in good academic standing as supported by submitting the most current transcripts;
2. Be registered in a post-secondary accredited institution (minimum of 12 credits per academic year); and
3. Demonstrate the degree of commitment to building relations with local Indigenous communities (assessed from the strength of answers to questions IV.B-D in application form).
