Staff at the Aboriginal student centres have first-hand knowledge of internal and external funding sources available to Aboriginal learners. If you need assistance, reach out to one of them. They can help you to fill out applications for funding as well as write reference letters for you.
Job and Volunteer Opportunities
The Aboriginal student centre may offer work study and volunteer opportunities that include acting as a student mentor, summer camp coordinator or ambassador. Work study opportunities allow you to work part-time on campus in a job that accommodates your studies. If you’re more interested in simply volunteering, consider helping out the centre itself. Many of the centre’s programs are made possible due only to the support of dedicated volunteers.
