About the program:
The British Columbia Aboriginal Network on Disability Society (BCANDS) is an internationally recognized and award-winning, not-for-profit, Indigenous disability organization. BCANDS is now offering a new program called the Indigenous Support for Student Learning Program (SSLP). This program is a time-limited project targeting Indigenous students who have limited financial resources, including those students living with disabilities. The SSLP is now accepting applications from eligible students across Canada to be considered to receive a laptop, disability-related software, and accessories. Our goal is to assist Indigenous students in their continued educational success and participation, and eventually, in their future employment.
Indigenous students across Canada of any age are eligible as long as they are of low-income, enrolled in a Formal education program or school at any level from kindergarten to post-secondary or taking courses through an accredited institution (online, remote, or on-site), and are actively attending their classes.
Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. Applications must be received by BCANDS no later than March 15th, 2021 for consideration. However, due to the limited financial resources available and high demand, we recommend that applicants submit their completed application as early as possible.
