Aboriginal Awards

The University of Alberta is committed to supporting Aboriginal students both at the beginning of their studies and throughout their degree. Proof of Aboriginal status may be required for some scholarships and awards. 

You are still eligible for scholarships even if you are receiving third-party funding.
