Financing your education
There are several avenues of financial support available specifically to indigenous students. Visit the University of Lethbridge FNMI website's finance section to find out more.
Elders from the Indigenous community are on campus each week to share knowledge and traditional practices, to offer guidance and support, for story telling, cultural teaching and spiritual mentoring. Indigenous Elder support is available to any University of Lethbridge student from any culture.
FNMI Mentors Program
The FNMI Mentors Program is funded through a generous donation from Scotiabank and coordinated by the University of Lethbridge Dhillon School of Business Indigenous Governane and Business Management program office.
There are two types of mentoring opportunities available to you:
This program fosters a supportive relationship between a University of Lethbridge student mentor and two youth. Mentorship enables the participants to share common interests and spend time together in social activities such as games and sporting events, recreational activities such as swimming, bowling or the climbing wall, and powwows or other shared interests.
If you are a current University of Lethbridge student, you may benefit from the wisdom and advice of University of Lethbridge Indigenous alumni. Alumni mentors are available to offer guidance and support throughout your university experience and help you build the confidence to reach your goals.
To get involved with either program, please contact:
Indigenous Students' Union (ISU)
The goal of ISU is to promote unity and inter-cultural relations, and to provide members with a stronger voice at the University of Lethbridge. Members are mainly mature students and many have come from distinguished political and social backgrounds such as chiefs, business people, elders and councillors. ISU is one of the oldest student clubs at the University of Lethbridge.
