Funding Programs (requirements, policies and application forms)
The Tsay Keh Dene Nation has two different Post-Secondary Education (PSE) Programs of funding from the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC): Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP) and University and College Entrance Preparation (UCEP) Program.
Education Funding Requirements
- Must be a full time student. Enrolled in 4 courses.
- Provide transcripts/grades. To assist in determining sponsorship.
Dates to apply: We only accept students for one year sponsorships at a time. If you are looking at attending in September, your application should be in to the Education Coordinator by May of that same year. Ex. September 2011, you need to apply by the deadline of May 15, 2011.
We will not sponsor failed and/or repeated courses.
If there are problems with attendance, and/or submitting school grades (which includes all quizzes, tests, assignments, mid-terms, finals, etc.) you will be put on probation for 30 days. After 30 days, if there is no change or improvement, you will no longer be funded.
Tsay Keh Dene will not sponsor people who are not serious about their future. Funding by Indian and Northern Affairs is limited. Please consider everything prior to enrolling in school and be sure you are seriously committed to completing your studies.
Unfortunately, we cannot fund every person. Therefore, the Education Department will determine sponsorship via a process that involves screening all applications and interviewing each potential applicant if necessary.
If you have any questions about your application or funding requirements, please call the Education Coordinator at the Tsay Keh Dene – Prince George Office.
It is imperative to remember that when applying for education sponsorship that you also include all supporting information and documentation, this in turn makes the decision process much easier and quicker. The application form is here.
Please remember the deadline dates and be sure to include all supporting documents. This will eliminate delays in the decision making process.
Tsay Keh Dene is responsible for the development of operating policy and procedures for the administration of the Post-Secondary Student Support Program and University and College Entrance Preparation Program.
This policy guides the Education Department in assessing the eligibility of students to receive financial assistance to attend accredited post-secondary institutions in an eligible program of study.
