Indigenous Albertans. Funded by the Government of Alberta and administered by Athabasca University, the 2016-17 Indigenous Careers Award and Indigenous Graduate Award are intended to encourage a larger proportion of indigenous Albertans (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) to pursue and complete full-time undergraduate or graduate studies in Alberta. We had a successful application turnout for the 2015-16 awards and look forward to another year of rewarding successful candidates!
