Crown Investments Corporation Extends Aboriginal Bursary Program

Released on April 7, 2014

The Crown Investments Corporation of Saskatchewan (CIC) has renewed funding for its Aboriginal Bursary Program for five years, starting in fall 2014.

“CIC is proud to support aboriginal students in achieving their goals for higher education,” Crown Investments Minister Donna Harpauer said.  “Financial demands are one of the top three reasons that students leave their studies.  These bursaries will go a long way toward reducing that pressure.”

The program is available to aboriginal students at the University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST), and Lakeland College.  The program grants up to 85 renewable $5,000 bursaries a year, depending on the number of applicants.  The projected cost of the five-year renewal is $2.2 million.

CIC has received many testimonials from students who say the bursaries have helped them in their studies.

“It’s incentive for me when I doubted myself at times, struggling to get where I am in my education,” SIAST student Nicole Horse said.  “I get to boast about it to my family, my two sons and the younger sisters, who I try my best to be a role model for.  I give thanks to everyone who has given me this opportunity to stand tall.”

“As a full-time University of Regina student, and mother of two, this bursary will help me enormously,” University of Regina student Night Keepness said.

To be eligible for the bursaries, students must:
  • Be Status Indian, non-status Indian, Métis or Inuit;
  • Be Saskatchewan residents for at least the past 12 months;
  • Have satisfactory academic standing in completed post-secondary studies;
  • Be registered in at least 12 credit hours per semester; and
  • Maintain a 70 per cent average to receive bursaries in subsequent years.
