Post-Secondary Education

Upper Nicola’s education department is funded by Aboriginal Affairs & Northern Development Canada (AANDC)

Post-secondary Assistance Program

The Post-Secondary Assistance Program provides financial support to allow eligible Upper Nicola Band members pursue higher education. Our education funding policy was updated in June 2013 by Chief and Council. Students will receive sponsorship for either full- or part-time studies. Sponsored full-time students will receive funding for tuition, books and supplies, and a living allowance. Sponsored part-time students will receive funding for tuition, and books and supplies.

Post-secondary application deadlines for new and returning students is before April 30 for fall registrations, and before September 30 for winter registrations.

Our Post-Secondary Funding Policy and Application is available in the Member Documents for registered members.
