Carleton receives $2.5M endowment for Indigenous support

September 17, 2021
The Joyce Family Foundation has provided a $2.5M endowment to provide supports for Indigenous students at Carleton University. Carleton will be matching the funds with $2.5M to provide support for Indigenous initiatives. The funding will support Indigenous students through bursaries, mentorship, Indigenous programming, student recruitment, and the creation of an environment that supports Indigenous student success. “Indigenous students deserve learning opportunities steeped in Indigenous cultural and philosophical traditions, while being wrapped in a blanket of community support,” said Benny Michaud, director of Carleton’s Centre for Indigenous Initiatives. “This is what the Indigenous Enriched Support Program provides and why this endowment is so significant.” Carleton (ON)
