2 Awards Valued at $1000 each
Awarded annually to an Aboriginal undergraduate and graduate student (First Nations, Metis and/or Inuit ancestry) at Western's main campus, who has achieved excellence in academics, and has also been actively contributing to the Aboriginal/Indigenous community. The recipient will be selected on the basis of academic achievement and previous and/or intended future contributions to the Aboriginal community. This award was established with a generous gift from the estate of Dr. Valio Markkanen.
Students must submit a one-page statement that explains why they are a worthy recipient, as well as a non-official transcript, and one letter of reference, to the Indigenous Services Office (Room 2100, WSSB) by Feb 15th. The recipient will be selected by a committee assembled by the Indigenous Services Office. This award will be presented each spring at the annual Indigenous Student Graduation Ceremony.
A variety of funding and financial assistance options are available to graduate students. Visit the SGPS website for details and links.
OGS awards are merit-based scholarships available to students in all disciplines of graduate study. SGPS Scholarships for full details.
