Darlene Weenie, Post-Secondary Education
Congratulations for reaching a point in your life and in your learning where you are considering a long term certificate or degree program beyond grade twelve. This is a major step for you personally and for First Nations People. I look forward to working with you so that your hopes and dreams may become a reality.
The purpose of the POST SECONDARY PROGRAM is to enable First Nations Students to pursue a higher education. However, the funding is CAPPED, so not everyone who applies is eligable to be funded. Acceptance of support funding requires a major commitment on the part of the student to work hard to complete the program successfully.
