Hotıì ts’eeda is providing up to $100,000 in bursaries for students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ełets’àts’eedıı — translated to “support each other” in Tłı̨cho — bursary is intended to assist students undertaking studies that further Hotıì ts’eeda’s mandate of fostering research and training in health and wellness. Priority will be given to Indigenous applicants.
Students without dependents can apply for $5,000 bursaries covering two semesters — while students with dependents may be eligible for an additional supplement.
Applicants must provide proof they are an NWT resident, are enrolled full-time at a designated post-secondary educational institution and are in a program that fulfills Hotıìts’eeda’s mandate. Applicants also must demonstrate they have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
