Terms and Eligibility
Awarded annually on the recommendation of the Director of the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies to an outstanding Indigenous student proceeding from one year to another in an undergraduate program within the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies. Preference will be given to a student in the Combined Honours in Indigenous Studies program with consideration given to those students taking a minor in the program. Application is required. Established in 2020 by faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the School.
The aim of this scholarship is to support outstanding Indigenous undergraduate students in the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies with a priority given to students from Algonquins of Pikwakanagan FN or Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg, or the urban Indigenous community(ies) in Ottawa.
Carleton’s School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies has a long history of advancing cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and teaching on Canada, its colonial history, Indigenous peoples, and the various groups who occupy the country. In particular, our pedagogy and scholarship considers the conjoined histories of Indigenous peoples and Canadians as a complex and ambiguous relationship which continues to impact every resident of the country. The Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission calls for reconciliation through an active process of decolonization. This is a shared undertaking in which Carleton and all other educational institutions will play a leading role. In keeping with this, our teaching and research is driven by a commitment to critical analysis and to fostering the growth of diverse, sustainable, and just communities.
