Scholarships and bursaries available to Indigenous students at OISE.

RBC Aboriginal Student Awards Program

From the website: The RBC Aboriginal Student Awards Program was launched in 1992 to assist
Aboriginal students to complete post-secondary education, and provide an
opportunity for RBC to strengthen its relationship with the Aboriginal
community. Selected students are awarded up to $4,000 each academic year for
two to four years to use towards tuition, textbooks, supplies and living

RBC awards 10 scholarships in two categories:
* For students majoring in disciplines related to the financial services
* For students majoring in disciplines unrelated to the financial services

Gladys Watson Graduate Award - U of T

From the website: To be awarded to Aboriginal students, including Status, Non-Status, Metis and Inuit students, enrolled in graduate programs at the master’s or doctoral level, and second-entry professional programs. All Aboriginal students in these programs are eligible to apply, full-time and part-time, with preference given to those students who demonstrate financial need.

Lillian McGregor Under/graduate Award - U of T

From the website: To be awarded to Aboriginal Students studying full time at the University of Toronto on the basis of financial need and Ontario residency. Aboriginal Students enrolled in the Transitional Year Program, undergraduate and graduate level programs and second entry studies will all be eligible to apply. Preference will be given to applicants who can demonstrate a contribution to the Aboriginal community through volunteerism and involvement with First Nation House and/or the Native Students Associations.

National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation

From the website: Indspire is the largest supporter of Indigenous education outside the federal government. To date Indspire has awarded more than $54 million in scholarships and bursaries to 16,000 First Nation, Inuit and Métis recipients nationwide.

Thanks to the generosity of numerous corporate and government partners, Indspire disburses funds to Indigenous youth across Canada, covering all disciplines in funding categories: Fine Arts, Oil and Gas and Trades and Technology, Health Careers and Post Secondary Education.

Indspire is able to obtain and disburse this much-needed financial support by partnering and engaging some of Canada’s leading companies, public agencies, professional and labour groups who generously invest their resources toward realization of the potential of First Nation, Inuit and Métis students.

Aboriginal Multimedia Society

From the website: Windspeaker and AMMSA maintain an extensive list of scholarships and bursaries available to Aboriginal students.

If you are a First Nations (status and non-status), Métis, Inuit student in Canada, there are a variety of available funding sources to help offset the financial burden of receiving an education. 

Please check the lists to determine which scholarships/bursaries that you may qualify for, and then contact the program administrators listed directly...
