Vancouver, British Columbia, August 22, 2023 — BC Métis Federation (BCMF) announced today the launch of the BCMF Student Scholarship Program which provides financial awards to eligible Métis students pursuing educational opportunities at the post-secondary level.
Métis students with full BCMF membership who are enrolled in post-secondary education can apply for scholarships between $750-$1,500. Applications are now open for the 2023/24 school year.
“We’re honoured to be able to support Métis students in this way,” said Keith Henry, BCMF President. “Métis students who hail from British Columbia are already engaging in exciting and ambitious educational pursuits, and BCMF wants to do everything it can to enable their growth.”
To be eligible for the BCMF Student Scholarship Program, applicants must be:
- Full BCMF members
- Permanent residents of British Columbia
- Registered in a recognized and accredited post-secondary institution in Canada
Applications must be completed and submitted on the BCMF Student Scholarship Program web page. Although BCMF would like to provide all applicants with a scholarship, funding is limited so not all applicants will be approved for a scholarship. Decisions are made on a first come, first served basis.
