In 2019, the Atlantic-IMN launched a new Promise Scholarship program for Indigenous high school students. We are happy to launch another round for this upcoming year! Our 2023/24 Promise Scholarship Program is for Indigenous high school students who will be graduating high school in 2023 and who are applying to attend a health-related program at a post-secondary institution for the next academic year (Fall of 2023 or Winter 2024). This program is funded by the Johnson Scholarship Foundation and Dalhousie University. 


To be eligible to apply, a student is required to:

  • Self-identify as First Nations, Métis, or Inuit;

  • Be from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, or Newfoundland & Labrador but do not need to be currently living in one of these provinces;

  • Be enrolled as a Grade 12 student during the 2022-2023 academic year;

  • Have a minimum grade point average of 75% in their grade 11 high school courses;

  • Be planning to apply to at least one health-related program at a university, college or other PSE institution that begins the following school year (Fall 2023 or Winter 2024); and

  • Complete the application form, respond to five essay questions, and submit your resume and transcript


The value of the Promise Scholarship award will be between $1,500-$2,000:​

  • The funds will be awarded when the student officially begins their PSE program (in Fall 2023 or Winter 2024)


Applications will be evaluated based on:

  • Presentation and writing quality of application (resume and application letter)

  • Clarify of responses (Did the applicant answer the questions asked?)

  • Academic achievement

  • Demonstrates an interest in pursuing a future career in a health-related field
