Scholarship - Foundation for the Advancement of Aboriginal Youth
Education is the key to the future and a decent quality of life. Financial support of education is the means to making that happen.
The Foundation for the Advancement of Aboriginal Youth (FAAY) is a national scholarship and bursary program administered by CCAB that responds to the critical need to assist Aboriginal high school and post secondary students with bursaries and scholarships — through the generous support of program sponsors.
Since its inception, FAAY has awarded over $2.9 million to First Nation, Inuit and Métis students.
Types of Financial Support Available:
Bursaries — the only national Aboriginal program that provides $750 to students pursuing a high school diploma as an incentive to stay in school.
Scholarships — provides a minimum amount of $2,500 and is available to students pursuing a post-secondary education in any discipline.
Canadian residents, of First Nation (Status or Non-Status), Métis or Inuit heritage and attending either high school or a post-secondary institute full-time and within Canada are eligible to apply for financial support. Mature students and adult education programs are included.
