Bursaries, Scholarships & More

The Ministry of Colleges and Universities has approved three-year, multi-year funding for the Indigenous Student Success Fund (ISSF). We anticipate this shift to multi-year funding will provide additional stability and predictability, enabling you to focus more on delivering quality programs to support Indigenous learners and less on yearly administrative processes.


Please click through to see ISSF Guidelines for 2023-2026, along with the multiyear workplan and budget templates covering the academic years 2023-2026.


Note that the yearly allocation amounts continue at the same levels as previous years. The deadline for submitting your workplan and budget is September 29, 2023.

  • 4-month summer internship
  • Professional mentorship and coaching from leaders across the organization
  • 1-1 post-grad job search support - students are paired with a Sun Life Recruiter to support in identifying potential job opportunities and provide guidance around resume writing, interview prep, etc.

PhD Opportunities

The Pathy Foundation Fellowship


The Pathy Foundation Fellowship provides professional leadership training and support for graduating students to lead a community development project anywhere in the world.


The 12-month fellowship is for graduating students who have the capacity and potential to develop as effective change-agents, a meaningful connection with a community of their choosing anywhere in the world, and an innovative idea of how this community could be strengthened. Candidates do not need to develop a completed plan at the application stage, but rather have an interesting and innovative idea of something that could strengthen the community that can then be further developed in the first few months of the program, informed by the on-campus and distance learning components.


This Fellowship is for graduating full-time students from McGill, uOttawa, Queen’s, Bishop’s and StFX universities who are 29 years old or under and are Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
