Aboriginal-specific Scholarships and Bursaries

Quebec-Labrador Foundation Awards

These are three scholarships of $500 each for students enrolled in studies at Memorial University of Newfoundland.

The first scholarship is funded from the Larry Shields Fund of the Foundation, and is awarded annually on the basis of academic performance and financial need to undergraduate students who are (a) native born to Newfoundland and Labrador, and (b) planning to study, or currently studying, Native American and/or Inuit cultures. In the event that a candidate who meets this specific criteria cannot be found in a particular year, the award may be given to a student in any year from one of the study fields and geographic locations indicated below for the second and third awards.

The second and third awards will be awarded annually on the basis of academic performance and financial need to students in any year providing that they come from one of the following areas: the Northern Peninsula, Fogo, Labrador South, or the Lower North Shore of Quebec (from Natashquan to Blanc Sablon). In awarding these two scholarships, special consideration will be given to those applicants studying in the fields useful to the development of the regions served by the Foundation: e.g. Education, Business, Nursing and Health, Forestry, Fisheries, Engineering and Natural Resources.

General Motors Undergraduate Scholarship

This scholarship was established by General Motors of Canada Limited with contributions to Memorial University's Opportunity Fund Campaign. Interest from the fund will provide one or more scholarships to support individuals who qualify as Native People, members of a Visible Minority and/or Physically Disabled.

It will be awarded to students in any year or faculty or school at Memorial University of Newfoundland. It will be awarded on the basis of scholarship standing. An application may be obtained from the Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards Office, Room 4018, University Centre, or by calling (709) 864-3956, emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
