If you are a Six Nations member and you have met the entrance requirements for and been enrolled in or accepted for enrolment in an eligible post secondary program then you can apply for post secondary education assistance through the Grand River Post Secondary Education Office. See the sections: WHEN TO APPLY and HOW TO APPLY.
WHAT IS AN ELIGIBLE PROGRAM?
An eligible post secondary program of study must be at least two academic years in length; be offered by a post secondary institution; and have secondary school completion or equivalent as a prerequisite for admission to the program. The program of studies must lead to or be for credit for a diploma or degree. Note some post diploma programs of one academic year in length may be eligible. Please check with your Post Secondary Funding Advisor.
The following courses DO NOT meet post secondary program funding requirements of the GRPSEO: Additional qualification courses for teachers. College and University Entrance Programs that result in secondary school credits or any pre-college level programs deemed to be preparatory, exploratory or access oriented for college level study (i.e., not resulting in full post secondary credit)
Given the demand on student funding and the need to manage available resources on a long and short term basis, the GRPSEO reviews programs for eligibility in light of the length of time it takes for a student to graduate with education qualifications and skills that will result in employment. Where there is little evidence that the program will lead to direct employment, the GRPSEO may limit funding for a program.
