Metis Scholarships and Bursaries

There are many members of the OMFRC community who have been successful in obtaining support through several of the programs in this featured in this list. Each organization has its own guidelines for qualification. This list is by no mean all of the Metis Bursaries offered and we will be adding to our list as more links become available to us.

Please Note: It has come to our attention that some students have been told that “they do not qualify for a Metis Bursary”. Don’t give up, you may just be speaking to the wrong person – give us a call at the OMFRC office and we will do our best to clarify your queries.

The following list are Bursaries and Scholarships that have been successful for our Members.  Scroll right on table to see more information.
