About the program

The Kitigan Zibi Education Sector’s Post Secondary Student Support Program is designed to assist registered Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg members to acquire college and/or university and professional qualifications within the designated funding period. It is the hope of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg that such individuals will become economically self sufficient and may realize their individual potentials for contribution to their Algonquin Nation, to other First Nations and to Society at large. The Post Secondary Student Support Program- Public College Policy provides for financial assistance (subject to funding availability) to individuals who have been accepted by a public accredited CEGEP or Community College program which normally requires completion of secondary school as a minimum academic requirement. This includes those persons who are accepted with lesser academic qualifications in recognition of the applicant’s maturity and potential for success in their chosen field of study.

The Kitigan Zibi Education Sector Post Secondary Student Support Application for financial assistance forms an integral part of our policies. For eligibility and funding criteria, please refer to our policies on the policies and guidelines page.

For the purpose of this document, any interpretation is that of the Kitigan Zibi Education Sector. All requests for clarification should be immediately directed to the Post Secondary Student Support Program Officer or to the Director of Education.

Any modifications to be made to the Post Secondary Student Support Program Policy will be implemented by no later than 60 days after being officially approved by the Kitigan Zibi Education Sector.

The 2014-2015 academic year is the last guaranteed year of funding as the Government of Canada is currently reviewing the Post Secondary Student Support Program. Please contact the Post Secondary Student Support Program Officer for more information.
