About the Louis Riel Bursary

The MMF continues to support post-secondary students through the Louis Riel Bursary. These bursaries are available to Metis students at several post secondary institutions across Manitoba and are administered through the Louis Riel Institute in partnership with the post-secondary institutions.

Qualified students are required to complete an application that may be one or two parts – depending on their individual post-secondary institute. The Louis Riel Institute then confirms that the applicant is eligible for the bursary through verification of Metis ancestry and the post-secondary institution determines the recipients based on their individual assessment criteria(s). Students are eligible to apply for the Louis Riel Bursary every year they are enrolled at their post-secondary institution.

Students who are interested in applying for this award can either contact their post-secondary institution directly or contact the Louis Riel Institute to request an application and get further details.
