Established in 2014 by the Indigenous Student Society (ISS), the Indigenous Student Engagement Scholarship demonstrates the ISA's commitment to supporting Indigenous learners. The scholarship will be awarded to a student identifying as First Nation (status and non-status), Metis or Inuit, who is engaged in the Indigenous community either in their home community or at the University of Guelph. Apply to Student Financial Services by May 15 with a one-page letter self-identifying as First Nation (status and non-status), Metis or Inuit and outline volunteer/leadership experience within the Indigenous community. The letter must be accompanied by a document from a member of their community (such as an elder, employer, volunteer supervisor or ISC staff member) with an explanation of the volunteer/leadership involvement and illustrating the contributions of the student to the Indigenous community including number of volunteer hours. This can include but not be limited to involvement and volunteer roles with the Indigenous Student Centre (ISC) at the University of Guelph.
