Provincial emergency funding is being made available for Indigenous post-secondary students experiencing financial pressures.
The government is providing $1.5 million to supplement the Indigenous Emergency Assistance Fund. This fund assists Indigenous students who are experiencing an unexpected financial emergency that may affect their ability to finish their studies.
The new governmental supports are available through all 25 public post-secondary institutions in BC, as well as Native Education College (NEC).
“No one should have to choose between an education and survival, and these emergency funds will help Indigenous students complete their studies with a better sense of well-being,” said Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation Scott Fraser.
Applications for the funds are through Indigenous Student Service Centres on campuses. Funds do not have to be repaid.
