Red River College and Indspire have partnered to offer financial support for up to 85 students with the new School of Indigenous Education Award. The award will cover the full cost of tuition, books, and supplies for students enrolled in one of five new academic programs: the ACCESS Pathway to Health Programs, the ACCESS Pathway to Engineering Technology Programs, the Indigenous Language Certificate, Culinary Skills Certificate, and Social Enterprise Diploma. “Red River College is working to create a seamless flow of wrap-around supports for aspiring Indigenous students, to help increase enrolment and graduation rates across the College,” says RRC Executive Director of Indigenous Strategy Rebecca Chartrand. “We are proud to partner with Indspire, (a group that) recognizes the important work we are doing as a College and has made an investment in a bright future for Indigenous students in our community.” RRC
