Aboriginal Scholars

The North Island College Aboriginal Scholars program is a holistic and culturally-relevant program for Aboriginal students. The program strives to empower students through engaging them in the process of creating a self-constructed achievement plan, ensuring students have supports to enable them to complete their program, while also increasing the sense of community and Aboriginal awareness on campus.

Participants will work with the Aboriginal education advisor, the Elders in Residence and other members of the Student Services team to create an achievement plan based on their individual needs. Students will work though their plan for the duration of the year.

This program is currently being piloted at our Comox Valley campus.
