Attention all Metis families. The BC Metis Federation is pleased to pass along the UBC Scholarship application notice that has a deadline for submissions in May 2012. This is another important opportunity for Metis people planning to attend UBC this upcoming year who cannot afford to attend post secondary education due to financial barriers. We know financial barriers remain one of the most important challenging for many Metis families and this is another way to support Metis families. We strongly encourage BC Metis Federation families and friends to pass this important notice along to anyone contemplating attendance at UBC in 2012-2013.
The $5,000 Aboriginal Major Entrance Scholarships – each renewable for up to three additional years for a total of $20,000 – will be awarded annually to Aboriginal students according to broad-based criteria, including academic excellence, leadership qualities and outstanding contributions to the community.
“These new awards will help more First Nations, Métis and Inuit students benefit from opportunities at UBC, where researchers, students and staff are engaged with issues of major importance to Aboriginal communities,” says Linc Kesler, director of UBC’s First Nations House of Learning.
