Accepting applications now for INTAKE!
We are currently accepting applications for EMBARK, an Indigenous Journey in STEM Education – refers to Science, Trades, Engineering and Math. The program is designed to honor and reflect Indigenous knowledge, and will have a large land based, and cultural component. Students in the program this year built a birch bark canoe.
Tuition for this special program is currently being paid for by Confederation College’s strategic fund. However, students will need to find other funding for their living allowances. Our Indigenous student Navigator, can help apply for funding through band sponsorship, scholarships, grants, or OSAP.
The program has:
- A dedicated Elder
- A dedicated Indigenous Navigator – who can help connect students to services in the city or at the College
- Additional supports as needed (ex. Daycare, housing, books, technology requirements)
Students will gain the skills you need to be successful in our Technology, Natural Resource, or Skilled trades programs.
We will help you gently gain the skills you need to be successful in our Indigenous Specific Pre Tech program. Students will then enroll in our free Indigenous Pre-Tech Certificate program. After that we will help you apply to one of our Technology, Natural Resource, or Skilled trades programs.
If you are interested in applying to the program or learning more about the program, please contact Alicia Brink, Program Manager at 807-475-6602, Alicia.Brink@confederationcollege.ca
