NIC’s Aboriginal Scholars program is recruiting for the 2021FA and 2022WI semesters!
The NIC Aboriginal Scholars program, funded by the RBC Foundation, is a holistic and culturally-relevant program for Aboriginal Students. The program strives to empower students through engaging them in the process of creating a self-constructed achievement plan, ensuring student have supports to enable them to complete their program, while also increasing the sense of community and Aboriginal awareness on campus.
Students work with an Indigenous Education Navigator to create an achievement plan, based on their individual needs. The goals can be academic, spiritual, emotional and/or physical, with the overall aim of supporting students and providing life skills to help them during their educational journey and beyond.
Students work with the Indigenous Education Navigator throughout the term to keep on track and also access services and supports that will help them achieve their goals. Students can apply for one term or the entire academic year. At the end of each term, successful students will earn a $250 scholarship.
Interested students should reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
All Indigenous students are welcome to apply, priority will be given to fulltime students who have not previously participated in the program.
More information about the program can be found on this Aboriginal Scholars web page and the video below.
