Animikii Technology and Entrepreneurship Scholarships for Indigenous Youth
Part of our organizational mission is to encourage and inspire Indigenous youth to choose entrepreneurship and technology as a career path. In 2015, Animikii launched the Technology and Entrepreneurship Scholarships for Indigenous Youth.
This scholarship provides Indigenous youth in a post-secondary setting with a $500 scholarship for books, tuition, supplies or any other cost-of-living expenses related to their time in school.
Our scholarships are available to Indigenous youth (Status and non-Status First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) ages 17-30 who are attending a postsecondary program with a focus on either technology or entrepreneurship. The school program does not have to be a four-year Bachelor’s degree, Master's degree, or Ph.D., but we do ask for proof of enrollment. Additionally, as part of our application, we ask students to provide a professional, academic, or volunteer reference letter. This letter can be written by a teacher, school administrator, manager, supervisor, coach, mentor, volunteer coordinator, or Counsellor.
