Indigenous Strategy Funded Applications

Indigenous Strategy Funded Applications 

Program details

As a part of our Indigenous Student Success Strategy, we launched a pilot program in October 2021 to cover the application fee for prospective Indigenous students. Phase two of the pilot program will run from January 24 - February 14, 2022. Indigenous applicants who apply during this period may be eligible to have their application fee ($75 for an online application or $100 for a paper application) covered.

Prospective students can apply online or by paper (pdf) to their preferred program. Prior to submitting your application, prospective students will connect with an Indigenous student advisor to declare your Indigenous identity and provide documentation. Applicants will have until February 18 to submit their Indigenous identity documentation.
