The Minôjitonigewin Scholarship is awarded annually on the recommendation of the Director of the School for Studies in Art and Culture to an outstanding full-time undergraduate student who is entering or proceeding from one year to another in any program of study within the School. Programs of study include: Art History, History and Theory of Architecture, Film Studies, and Music. Preference will be given to an Indigenous student, but all applications will be considered.

“Minôjitonigewin” (Min-O-jiton-eh-geh-win) is an expression or explanation for someone doing something skillfully and with good intent, it can be used in crafting, writing and painting – meaning someone has honed a skill. This scholarship will allow students to hone their own skills as they explore their passion for Indigenous arts and culture.

Nominations are open

This year’s award is valued at $5000 and nominations will be accepted until April 12.
