Bursaries for the Indigenous Student

ANTCO prides itself on being an integral part of the Indigenous community. We know that students are often doing their best to meet the expectations and pressures of their education while at the same time balancing the financial obligations and expenses of being a student and this is why we are pleased to be able to offer three (3) student bursaries.

All Nations Trust Company (ANTCO) / Bank of Montreal (BMO) Bursary

The endowment established in 1995 will provide an annual bursary to an Indigenous student who has completed one year of study at Thompson Rivers University (TRU). Preference is given to a student who demonstrates participation in community activities or organizations. Applications are processed through TRU.
