Paying for School

The financial aspects of post-secondary education can be overwhelming. Our resources will help you to understand funding options that are available for Aboriginal students in post-secondary education.


First Things First

If you are a student with First Nations status or a registered member of the Métis Nation, be sure to check with your Band or agency for sponsorship information. It is important to contact your Education Coordinator before you even apply for post-secondary education. Most Bands and agencies require that applications for the sponsorship are submitted several months prior to program start dates. Funding is limited, and some Bands have specific selection criteria, so get in contact with your Band as early as possible.
