The Indigenous Student Scholarship aims to support Indigenous students who are seeking a post-secondary education at St. Stephen’s University. We acknowledge that the Canadian education system has done severe damage to Indigenous Peoples in the past and we are committed to empowering current and future scholars as we walk toward reconciliation.

 This scholarship is open to self-identified indigenous students who are enrolled for full-time studies at SSU.

FundingUp to three $2,000 scholarships will be awarded towards two terms of study in 2020- 2021. Awards will be released in 2 disbursements, $1000 at the beginning of each term, and credited towards SSU tuition or an academic mentor. No amount will be returned in cash in the event of withdrawal.

Eligibility: Students must be registered at SSU full-time for the coming academic year.

Application: The application includes one essay (500 words) which must be written by the student who is applying for the scholarship.
