In 2019, the Atlantic-IMN launched a new Promise Scholarship program for Indigenous high school students. We have successfully held 3 rounds of this program to date, and are happy to launch our 2022/23 Promise Scholarship Program for Indigenous high school students who will be graduating high school in 2022 and who are applying to attend a health-related program at a post-secondary institution for the next academic year (Fall of 2022 or Winter 2023). 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 2021-2022 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 2022 or Winter 2023); and
Complete the application form, respond to four 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 2022 or Winter 2023)
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?)
Demonstrates an interest in pursuing a future career in a health-related field
Need help with the resume, letter, or applying for PSE programs for next year?
If you would like support completing a resume, or formatting your answers to the above questions, please contact the Regional Coordinator of the Atlantic IMN, Tara Pride (firstname.lastname@example.org).
