National Recognition for Role Models from Local Communities - Indspire, the national Indigenous charity that supports and celebrates Indigenous education and achievement in Canada, today announced the 12 outstanding First Nations, Inuit, and Métis individuals who will be honoured with the 2019 Indspire Awards.
A summary of the survey was released today by Indspire, in advance of a Wednesday meeting in Ottawa co-hosted by Indspire and Universities Canada calling for greater investment in Indigenous student success. Representatives of the federal government, Parliamentarians, Canada’s universities and industry leaders will be attending to discuss the future of Indigenous post-secondary education.
Expanded financial support for new and returning Indigenous students at McGill McGill University’s Indigenous students can now rely on dedicated financial support thanks to a new partnership with Indspire, an Indigenous national charity that invests in the education of Indigenous peoples. Indspire will manage the awarding process through its Building Brighter Futures: Bursaries, Scholarships and Awards program to secure matching funds from the Government of Canada.
