Background
share close

This year’s Verna J. Kirkness Education Foundation Program for Indigenous (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) high school students will be taking place this May! This year’s online program is tailored for students in grades 10, 11, and 12. We are once again offering full scholarships for successful applicants to participate in the VJFK Program to learn about science, engineering, technology and math.

A Peek at Post-Secondary Education. 

This year’s program is offered in partnership with 13 universities from across Canada, offering Indigenous high-school students an opportunity to learn directly from professors and their team about the exciting research happening on campuses across Canada right now. Our VJKF team has worked hard to create an exciting five-day virtual program featuring core lab classes, guest speakers, hands-on science experiments, a keynote speaker, virtual campus tours, scholarship opportunities, prizes, and much more.

Students accepted to the program will have the opportunity to choose which research area they’d like to learn more about. We will be updating our website as professors confirm this year’s topics.

Encourage Students to APPLY EARLY! 

Students can apply either online or by sending in the attached application. What they need to apply: our parental consent form completed, a personal reference from a teacher, and an essay simply telling us why you want to attend (50-400 words). Student grades are not a factor in being accepted! The deadline to apply is April 1st, 2022.

There are two Programs to choose from:

  • Western Canada Program, May 2–6 (PDT)
  • Eastern Canada Program, May 9–13 (EDT)
