About the Program
The Hauer and Company Indigenous Bursary Program provides educational bursaries to BC Indigenous Peoples on a merit-based system in order to assist students in achieving their educational dreams and reaching their career aspirations thereby improving the social and economic well-being of BC Indigenous Peoples.
Today, there are approximately 200,000 Indigenous people in British Columbia. They include First Nations, Inuit and Métis. There are 198 distinct First Nations in B.C., each with their own unique traditions and history. Many are unable to attend a post-secondary institution due to lack of financial resources.
At Hauer and Co. we understand that receiving an education is an expensive undertaking, especially for Indigenous Persons who may not have the financial support.
Hauer and Co. seeks to empower Indigenous Peoples by offering annual educational bursaries in the amount of $5,000 each. These are non-repayable funds.
