Brock University and MacEwan University have announced new funding for scholarships and bursaries supporting Indigenous students. Brock’s Faculty of Math and Science will be providing $110K to fund three new entrance scholarships for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis students. “We are seeing increasing numbers of Indigenous students entering STEM ... programs and this funding will help them achieve their dreams,” said Robyn Bourgeois, Acting Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement. MacEwan has also announced new financial support for Indigenous students. A “major donation” will support Indigenous students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, and a $250K donation from the Rupertsland Institute will go towards the Métis Scholar Awards Endowment, which provides bursaries to up to 30 Métis students annually.
