Funding Opportunities

The NLC Summer Program fee is $2,700, reviewed yearly. This cost includes required texts, but not recommended texts.

Students can apply for funding from several sources:

  • First Nations students attending the NLC Summer Program who are status should apply for funding from their bands or local educational authorities.
  • Non-status and Métis students should apply for scholarships from Indspire.
  • Those who do not meet Indspire or band funding criteria should look into student loans or other scholarships and bursaries for which they might be eligible.

Other bursaries can be found through the Government of Canada Aboriginal Bursaries program and through Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada's Post-Secondary Student Support Program

Occassionally, the program has very limited financial assistance available for a very small number of students. If you cannot secure funding from any other source, contact the NLC Summer Program for more information about this limited funding.
