Help us remove some of the systemic barriers Aboriginal students face

Aboriginal people are fighting to overcome the aftermath of residential schools and better their lives, improve their families’ lives and strengthen the communities in which they live. Obtaining post-secondary education is an essential part of that fight, and you can be part of the solution.

Aboriginal students often face significant systemic barriers—especially when pursuing post-secondary education, and providing financial assistance is one way to help remove some of those barriers. The Four Directions Bursary is one support that creates equitable opportunities for Aboriginal students to succeed on their  post-secondary education journey.

Part of Truth and Reconciliation

The Four Directions Bursary  is for Aboriginal [First Nation (Status and Non-Status), M├ętis, & Inuit] students who have been directly or indirectly impacted by the Canadian Indian Residential School system.

This bursary is aligned with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action 10 and 11 to “provide sufficient/adequate funding” to Aboriginal students.
