Indspire, UWinnipeg partner to support 80 FNMI students in coming year

February 22, 2017

Indspire and the University of Winnipeg have partnered to support 80 First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students through the creation of a new award. The University of Winnipeg/Indspire Indigenous Awards Program will provide students with demonstrated financial need with an award of $4.4K. Administered by Indspire, the awards program has been made possible through fundraising efforts and cost-sharing by UWinnipeg, as well as matching funds from the Government of Canada. “I am delighted The University of Winnipeg has shown its leadership and willingness to meet a critical need,” said Roberta Jamieson, President and CEO of Indspire. “Research shows that a lack of funding is a key impediment for Indigenous students who are striving to complete their post-secondary education.” NationTalk | UWinnipeg
