Purpose of the Scholarship: Assist Indigenous women and men of all ages to pursue their dreams through the ceremony of higher education.
Education as a way of Ceremony: In the same way that one can go through a traditional ceremony of purification, enlightenment and healing, we see higher education as a modern-day ceremony offering the same rewards. Traditional ceremonies require, and help nurture, one’s discipline, patience, gratitude; these same attributes are required and increased through the Ceremony of higher education.
Scholarship Amount: Up to ten (10) scholarships are available of $1000.00 and will be awarded for the 2017-2018 academic year. The scholarships will be paid directly to you or your educational institution, to cover tuition expenses.
