Bursaries & Scholarships

Many – if not all – scholarships available to Aboriginal youth are also available to the Metis. When researching scholarships and bursaries, it is best to read the requirements and make sure the award you are applying for includes your university and area – some scholarships are only available to Aboriginal youth at specific universities or specific provinces. So, before applying, make sure to read the fine print!

Getting started:

  • Get volunteering! Most scholarships will require some form of community involvement.

  • Request letters of reference from all those you work or volunteer for. These will not only be useful in applying for scholarships, but in the future when you are applying for work.

  • Try to maintain good grades! Most scholarships require a certain grade point average.

  • Research, research, research! The links below are not the only scholarships out there. Depending on what you are studying (field of study), awards will vary.

  • Visit the financial aid department at your university/college/training centre.
