The Northern First Nations Health Partnership Committee initiated a post-secondary student award opportunity for Indigenous students studying in health-related disciplines in northern BC.
The award donors (Aboriginal Health – Northern Health and the First Nations Health Authority) provide these awards to illustrate their commitment to implementing the Northern First Nations Health and Wellness Plan. They work in close partnership to enhance the health and wellness of Indigenous peoples in northern British Columbia and would like to support students who are also invested in this goal.
These awards are offered through northern BC universities and colleges. If you are interested to learn more, please contact the financial aid office at your school.
